Our Campaign Storyends 28 Jun 2022, 11:59 PM
Self-care is important to our mental health and there is no health without mental health!
Everyone knows that exercising is good for health. But we often procrastinate, giving excuses such as no time, too tired etc. Do you know that exercising is a good form of self-care too? Regular exercise can increase self-confidence, improve your mood, help you relax, and lower symptoms of mild depression and anxiety. Exercise can also improve your sleep, which is often disrupted by stress, depression and anxiety.
To encourage everyone to focus on your own self-care, the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) will be inviting our management members and staff to walk during the campaign period to emphasize the importance of self-care for everyone.
The Chiefs and Senior Management Team (SMT) have committed to walk/ hike/ run 500km collectively from now till 24 June. We hope you can join them in the walk too and together AIC can walk 1,000km!
For every dollars of staff donation, the Chiefs and SMT will reciprocate your support by matching dollar to dollar!
Love ourselves and to love others, join us for the walk on 24 June, 5pm! We can all play a part.
Support AIC and CAL!
CAL FOR MENTAL WELLNESS (C4MW) aims to raise funds for Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL) to continue supporting caregivers of persons with mental health issues in the community. Tapping on the Tote Board Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme, we aim to raise $500,000, for dollar-to-dollar matching from the Government, capped at $250,000.
Besides raising funds, the campaign aims to boost mental health awareness and literacy among the general public. We also hope to spread awareness about the availability of fully-funded programmes and services for caregivers of people with mental health issues, that are offered by CAL.
We are rallying the community and caregivers to get creative and start their own mini campaigns in support of the cause. Anyone interested to participate can choose any activity and seek donations to complete milestones or commitments. For example, "If I receive $10,000 in donations, I will cycle around the island" or "If I receive $500 I will conduct a zoom baking class for 10 people".
CAL will lead several activities that anyone can participate in. Suggestions for campaigns will be provided on our website (cal4mentalwellness.sg), and social media, and we will feature public-led campaigns throughout the four week period to inspire and motivate others. All campaign creators will be referred to as Mental Wellness Champions (MWCs). This sets the ball rolling for CAL's foray into developing a pool of MWCs within the community.
