Mental Health Let's Talk: Depression

Depression affects 6.3% of the population in Singapore and leads to debilitating consequences for many in the community. We have all met someone who is clinically depressed.

Mental Health Let’s Talk: Depression is a new initiative by Shan You to educate and advocate on depression through a public conversation with persons impacted by this mental health condition.

The session will start with The Silence Bubble: Depression, a short skit that combines authentic visuals and clever symbolism to portray the major features of depression in an emotive way. It is produced in collaboration with the Singapore Repertory Theatre and directed by Grace Lee-Khoo, Founder of Access Path Productions.

The Group Conversation explores the real consequences of depression in the lives of individuals and their hopes of living a good fulfilling life. You are invited to be part of the conversation by sharing your unique experience and perspective.

After a networking tea-break, participants will break out in small groups to reflect and share about the changes needed in our community to better support persons living with depression.

We invite people who care about the issues and consequences of depression and would like to re-think the ways to bring about real changes in our community, to join this conversation.
