Mental Health Advocacy Badge Programme Round 2

June 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Dear Guide Guiders,

 

There is an overwhelming response to the new badge programme on Mental Health Advocacy that was launched earlier in January 2021. 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. This pilot programme is funded by Temasek Foundation and the training will be delivered by the Institute of Mental Health. Do sign your Guides up for the next run of the training.
