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.
We hope to
Raise awareness of the stigma towards persons with mental health conditions
Celebrate the resilience, strength and contributions of persons in recovery from mental health conditions
Educate and equip the public with tips and knowledge to interact and support persons in recovery
Facilitate more conversations on mental health
Encourage more balanced reporting and portrayal of persons with mental health conditions in the news and media
