Our Campaign Story

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.
