Mental health is everyone’s business. Awareness on mental health is important in order to remove stigma and extend help to those in need.
Girl Guides Singapore will be launching a new badge programme on Mental Health Advocacy in January 2021, supported by Temasek Foundation and with training provided by the Institute of Mental Health.
The Mental Health Advocacy badge programme is created for the Guides to equip them with the mental health knowledge and skills as well as support them to initiate ground-up mental health projects to increase mental health awareness among their peers, family and community. We want our girls to be mindful of the current situation and become responsible citizens who will take action to change the world by advocating for mental health to improve the lives of others.
