Our Campaign Storyends 17 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM
Update: we have reached the fundraising target! Thank you for your contribution in helping to hit my fundraising target! You can continue to give, every dollar counts in helping this cause still!
A 2010 IMH study found that 12% of the Singapore population - or 1 in 8 persons - had experienced a mental disorder in their lifetime. We need to talk about mental health more. Hence I am fundraising for SOS for my 30th birthday.
Every dollar counts, and every act matters in raising awareness and normalizing mental wellbeing and talking about mental health in Singapore. Thanks for reading this and have a blessed day ahead :)
About The Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 408 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2015 to 2020: that's about 1-2 suicides every day.
According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it.
Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
