Inspiring individuals, Building collectives

A conversation about sustaining meaningful impact in the mental health scene amongst mental health organisations, ground-up initiatives and youth volunteers.

About The Conversation

IMG_6510.PNG

More and more youths are identifying gaps in systematic mental health support and have grown to be passionate advocates in different shapes and forms. 

 

In this conversation, we are creating a space for networking and mentorship amongst mental health organisations, ground-up initiatives, and youth volunteers.

 

Programme highlights

  • Segment 1: Panel discussion

    • Mental health organisations will come together to share more about their experiences in serving the mental health cause and how ground-up initiatives can start impactful and sustainable projects. The topics we will explore include how to start sensitive conversations about mental health, common problems faced when starting an advocacy project, and more.

  • Segment 2: Focus Group Discussion

    • Participants will move into small-group discussions facilitated by mental health organisations and will be given a chance to present their projects/future plans. This will allow them to gain insights into possible collaborations and resources to tap into, and practical advice on how to create a project that is impactful and sustainable.
