According to the latest mental health study, one in ten people in Singapore will be stricken by mental illness in their lifetime, and many are likely to face depression - the most common mental illness here. Such an alarming fact necessitates our presence as a local organization that reaches out to whoever needs help in building positive mental health. (excerpt from Silver Ribbon Sg homepage)
I believe that Mental health issues has too much social stigma attached to it. To the extend that many do not feel comfortable tackling it. Proper care and treatment is possible, but we must make it possible.
Our objectives are:
a. To provide information on the types of mental health services available in Singapore.
b. To raise awareness of mental health issues & promote the eradication of stigma & prejudice against persons with mental disorders.
c. To provide basic counselling & facilitate the detection of persons with mental disorders with the purpose of encouraging treatment.
d. To promote positive mental well-being.
e. To assist specific interests of the community to customize mental health programs for different audiences.
f. To assist persons with mental disorders to integrate into community, thus improving their quality of life.
In furtherance to the above:
a. To measure the level of stigma towards mentally ill community & develop strategies to encourage positive attitudes.
b. To identify level of awareness to shape the activities in mental health promotion.
c. To increase rates of help seeking & decrease delays in treatment, thereby curbing mounting medical costs in SG.
