It has been reported in the Singapore Mental Health Study 2016 that one in seven people in Singapore has experienced mental health issues in their lifetime.
In order to increase awareness of mental health and raise funds to support Caregivers Alliance Limited, a team of Make The Change staff will be trekking to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) in April 2020.
The experience of people with mental health conditions and their caregivers is a journey of resilience. For many of them, just getting through daily life can feel like scaling a mountain. Life has its ups and downs, but we want to be able to put our best foot forward and give everything our best shot, so as to get more people to talk about mental health issues and debunk the many misconceptions surrounding them.
For these reasons, we will be trekking to Everest Base Camp together with another 40 representatives from Institute of Mental Health, SGX, Resilience Collective, AIC, NCSS, Deutsche Bank, Care Givers Alliance, and Accenture
Only 2 of our team members will be going to Everest but the rest of the team in Singapore is supporting the movement by selecting Yolo2020 as one of our Pro-Bono creative clients.
Our team is helping in the marketing and communication strategies supporting all the teams on their fundraising campaigns.
