Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

Hi, I'm Jillian and for the rest of October, I'm planning to run 88km in an effort to raise funds for the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

The new norm situation has no doubt taken a toll on most of our mental health; myself included. A fresh graduate, perhaps it's the anxiety of the future, coupled with uncertainty of the current situation; it can feel overwhelming. This year, I've had much lows, but I'm grateful for the kind souls around me that just make the days go by easier or even, make them better.

It is encouraging to know that the awareness of mental health issues is
being amplified on the news, giving it a much needed awareness and to reduce the stigma that surrounds it. Nonetheless, more can always be done.

I'd like to dedicate my runs in October to this issue, I'll keep my word to it, follow my 88km journey on Strava: Jillian See

Let me know if you donated, I'd love to send you a handwritten letter as a form of appreciation! DM on IG: @sxjsee.

We are commemorating this milestone with an inclusive #EatMoveCreateSAMH mental wellness campaign, to raise awareness of how creativity in daily living activities, such as eating, moving and creating, can aid mental well-being. We have an exciting line-up of activities to help you improve your mental fitness, do check them out here (https://www.samhealth.org.sg/emc) or follow @samhealthcreatives on IG on how you can take action and be a mental health champion!

As a non-funded programme, we continue to be dependent entirely on fundraising efforts. Make a direct donation to help us continue our programmes and support person in recovery. Every amount counts and will be doubled through the Tote Board dollar-for-dollar match!

Just as physical fitness helps our bodies to stay strong, mental fitness helps us to achieve and sustain a state of good mental health. Let's EAT well, MOVE often & Just CREATE!
