UPCOMING EVENT
Bike-a-thon 2021: Psych-cle for Change, We will be al-ride!

Young people everywhere face unprecedented challenges today. With rapid globalization, they are constantly overloaded with information while facing multiple pressures such as increasing competition in school and peer pressure to portray perfect appearances on social media. Furthermore, the stigma of being “imperfect” forces many to hesitate seeking help, resulting in depression, anxiety & self-harm.

Only with recent news of more youths facing acute distress, did attention on youth mental wellness grow. According to Samaritans of Singapore, the leading cause of death between ages 10 and 29 is suicide. While 1 in 5 youths experience mental disorders in their lifetime.

With your help, young people can be equipped with mental health literacy, healthy tech connectivity and engaged with meaningful initiatives. Preventive work will help us to reach youths before it’s too late.

At the Y, we engage, equip and empower young people through holistic development programmes like internships, mentoring, volunteer engagements and project empowerment opportunities. We’ve been seeing more young people share their struggles with mental health issues and together we can do more.

Furthermore, Tote Board Singapore will match a dollar for every dollar you donate!
