World Mental Health Day - Poster Exhibition

 

World Mental Health Day (WMHD) was first observed 28 years ago on 10 October 1992. Since then, the world has changed with different threats and new challenges. This year the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented health crisis, has affected the physical and mental wellbeing of millions of people. In Singapore, the pandemic has caused anxieties and fear to many people. The new normal has affected our mental wellbeing with experts warning of more anxiety and depression cases in the months ahead (https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/experts-fear-long-term-effect-mental-health).  
 
Even without the current worldwide pandemic, the global mental health conditions already needed attention. A Singapore study indicates that one in seven people has experienced some form of mental disorder in their lifetime (Media Release by Institute of Mental Health, 11 Dec 2018). In addition, the study showed a higher rate of mental illness in individuals between the ages 18 to 34.  Two other groups that are of concern are the young and the old. Suicide continues to be the leading cause of death among young people aged 10 to 29. Thus we need to increase the awareness of maintaining good mental health especially in the current Covid-19 pandemic.  Awareness on mental wellness is important as good mental health results in good thinking, feeling and actions, which will impact one’s physical and social wellness.
 
Our ITE Colleges’ Chip Eng Seng Study Grant student recipients have taken time to design digital posters in support of the World Mental Health Day to promote awareness of good mental health amidst the new norms created by the Covid-19 pandemic.  We hope that these 18 specially selected posters can help start conversations on maintaining good mental health and wellness.
