About Campaign

World Mental Health Day, on 10 October, is a day for us to unite in our efforts to improve the mental health of people around the world and to raise awareness of mental health issues.

The theme for this year is suicide prevention. According to World Health Organisation (WHO), close to 800 000 people take their own life ever year. Furthermore, for each suicide, there are more than 20 suicide attempts.

What can you do to make a difference?
Let people who are struggling with their mental health know that they are not alone! Support this meaningful day by joining the WHO's #40Seconds of action campaign to show that you care.
Here are some ideas:
- If you are struggling, take 40 seconds to kickstart a conversation with someone you trust about how you are feeling.
- If you know someone who has lost a loved one to suicide, take 40 seconds to start a conversation and ask them how they are doing.
- If you are an employer or manager, take 40 seconds to formulate a positive message of support to your employees about resources available to them in the workplace or local community in times of mental distress.

With the rising concerns of youth mental health, SAMH plans to increase our outreach and services to youths. We appeal for your kind donation to enable us to develop more resources and programmes to better support our youth in promoting their well-being and building their mental resilience.

Your generosity and support will enable us to continue to promote mental wellness for all.
