5-HT Week Introduction
"5-HT" is short for "5-hydroxytryptamine", also known as serotonin, which is a highly abundant neurotransmitter in the human body. It can help humans generate pleasurable emotions at the brain level and is therefore known as a messenger for transmitting happiness.
The 5-HT Week is held during the revision season of each semester and features stress-relieving activities with a humanistic care philosophy to help students and faculty members relieve stress, experience joy, generate a sense of belonging, and achieve emotional balance during busy times. 5-HT is also gradually reaching out to broader communities, providing emotional support for more people.
The theme of the 5-HT Week this semester is "0-zero", indicating the dividing line between positive and negative numbers as well as the circle that encompasses everything which resolves the balance of things.
The stress-relieving activities are divided into five modules including sport, music, markets, therapy, and games. Through these activities, we hope that participators will be able to better understand their emotions, and find a better emotional balance.
