About Beyond The Label

Beyond the Label is a movement to address stigma faced by persons with mental health conditions in society. According to the Singapore Mental Health Study 2010, one in eight adults have experienced a mental health condition in their lifetime. Of those, about four in five do not seek help due to stigma and low mental health literacy.

Objectives of Beyond the Label

Beyond the Label is our driver of change to influence public's perception towards persons with mental health conditions. As part of the movement, a three-year education campaign will be launched to encourage the public to go beyond the label of a mental health diagnosis, to view and regard persons with mental health conditions for who they are.

In truth, there are very few mental health affirmation stories in Singapore. But knowing that I can help someone out there by sharing my experience with others through writing is what keeps me going.
