Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2022, 11:59 PM

Hi, I'm Jillian and this is the second year running that I'm raising funds for Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

One year on, and the world is still feeling the effects of the pandemic, but in some way, it has connected us and brought to light the importance of mental health. 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 space to hold conversations, and to lessen the stigma that surrounds it.

My heart goes out to caregivers - caring for the well-being of others and loved ones at the expense of themselves, and to youths and individuals who have no one to turn to in these isolating times (especially during the peak of lockdown). I hope that the funds raised can provide the resources - be it in the form of professional help, education, awareness or community support for anyone who is going through a dark season in life.

This October, for every $1 donated, I'll cover 1km - in the form of bike/run/swim - because I tri, and I will try to share the journey because you're a part of it.

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

Raising awareness can help reduce the stigma around mental illnesses.
