About Campaignends 30 Sep 2021, 11:59 PM
Young people everywhere face unprecedented challenges today. They are constantly overloaded with information while facing many pressures such as increasing competition in school and peer pressure to portray perfect appearances on social media.
Furthermore, the stigma of being imperfect repels many from seeking help, resulting in depression, anxiety and self-harm. Only with recent news of more youths facing acute distress, did attention on youth mental wellness grow. According to Samaritans of Singapore, the leading cause of death between ages 10 and 29 is suicide. 1 in 5 youths experience mental disorders in their lifetime.
With your help, youths can be equipped with mental health literacy, healthy tech connectivity and engaged with meaningful initiatives. Preventive work will help us reach them before it's too late.
At the Y, we engage, equip and empower young people through holistic development programmes like internships, mentoring, volunteer engagements and project empowerment opportunities. We've been seeing more young people share their struggles with mental health issues and together we can do more.
New: Special extension of campaign from 12 Sept to 30 Sept. Help to give more and make a difference today!
