Mental Health Month with Silent Conditions
Silver Ribbon (Singapore) is a Non-Profit Mental Health Organisation which seeks to combat mental health stigma, encourage early help and facilitate the integration of people with mental illness into society through innovative means of promoting mental health literacy. They also provide free counselling services, which is especially vital during this Covid-19 period.
What is this campaign all about?
Silent Conditions is a social initiative started by a group of like-minded people who are passionate about mental health. We hope to raise more awareness of mental health issues through social media advocacy and organising events in hopes of minimising the stigma associated with it.
In light of this COVID-19 pandemic, most of us are worried about our physical health and rightfully so. However, there is one aspect that's often neglected - our mental health. The fact that we are worrying is a worry itself. This pandemic has caused heightened stress and anxiety among people due to various concerns (e.g., social isolation, unemployment, grief/fear of losing their loved ones).
The United Nations (UN) has also warned about the risk of a major global mental health crisis looming from this COVID-19 pandemic and called for urgent action to address the psychological suffering brought on by the pandemic. Therefore, we hope to play our part in supporting this mental health effort. We are collaborating with a team of businesses to organise this 2-week crowdfunding campaign for Silver Ribbon (Singapore).
