Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2020, 11:59 PM

Hi there. My name is Annette. I'm the one in the pictures with the older woman... my mother. Together, we're going to Mount Everest with several others this year - we're doing this to raise awareness for mental health issues, and to raise funds for the Caregivers Alliance.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER?

1 in 7 people are believed to experience mental health issues. Examples of mental health issues include depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia.

In the 2018 study in Singapore, it is estimated that there are close to 500,000 persons in Singapore who are individuals taking care of someone with a mental health issue!

WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE

As we prepare for our hike up to the base camp of Mt. Everest, we hope to spark conversations about mental health and caregiving. Through our fund raising efforts, we hope to inspire others to rise beyond the label, and break the social stigma attached to the topic of mental health issues. Every conversation started has the possibility of a person saved from further suffering associated to mental illness.

TOUGH COOKIES NEED KIND SOULS

Caregivers are often exposed to prolonged stressed and pressures. They too are at risk of suffering from mental illness as such.

Your donations will go towards supporting these caregivers.

Thank you for being the kind soul who lends support to these tough cookies.
