Conversation A

Do I have to pay to sign up for this conversation?


No! This conversation is free for all to sign up, as are all the activities in "The Next Step For Us", the Mental Health Collective Conference.




Why is this a closed-door conversation?


This is to ensure that a safe and secure space is created for our participants to share their thoughts and best practices. Potential sensitivities may also arise from schools and youths when they make comments in a public setting.




If this is a closed-door conversation, can I still join and how do I join?


Definitely - by registering for this conversation! Do note that participation is on a first-come-first-serve basis, as there’s a limit to the number of participants who can join this conversation. Therefore, only those who have registered and fall within the set capacity will be admitted into the conversation.




By youths, you mean?


While we believe this conversation involves students of all ages, Revisiting of the Heart of Education will focus on Junior Colleges for a more targetted conversation. As such, we are looking at JC1s & JC2s (as of 2021) as well as JC alumni who have graduated in 2019 and 2020 to participate in these conversations with their schools.
Rest assured, MHC is committed to bringing this conversation to primary schools, secondary schools and other Institutes of Higher Learning in the years to come!




I am neither a youth or part of the school authorities. Can I sign up for this conversation?


Unlearning and relearning as a family is designed to facilitate conversations between school authorities and youths. If you are neither, the topics of discussion may not be relevant to you. And we would like this experience to be as valuable to you as possible. You can consider other activities available at the Mental Health Collective Conference here.




By school authorities, you mean?


To make sure that the conversation is purposeful, we are hoping to have a good representation of school authorities. Therefore, it is preferable that representatives from schools consists of a mix of school management representatives (eg. Director of Student Development), school counsellors, or an educator. If you are still uncertain, feel free to drop us a message at mentalhealthcollectivesg@gmail.com, or drop us a direct message on Instagram @MentalHealthCollectiveSG.
