Speak Up

In support of World Mental Health Day, 10 October 2016
 
According to the Singapore Mental Health Study conducted by IMH in 2010, about 1 in 8 Singaporeans have a mental health issue. Of those, only a third will seek help1.
 
This project was part of NCSS’s 5-year public education efforts to promote the inclusion of persons in recovery as our thoughts, words and actions can make a difference. We hope that through this project, persons in recovery would feel that they are not alone, and that the general public would be more accepting and inclusive towards persons in recovery. 

If you need any information on this project, please contact Ms Seri Ayuni at NCSS_Mental_Health@ncss.gov.sg.
