ABOUT US

We Are a Peer-Powered Platform for Mental Wellness

What sets us apart is that we are a collective made up of and led by people with lived experience. Our collective actively gives a voice to the lived experience, reducing stigma and building a safe space for open discussions around mental illness and recovery, and mental wellness in general.

Co-founded by BinjaiTree and Caregivers Alliance Limited, with strong support from the National Council of Social Service and the Institute for Mental Health, we are poised to make a difference in the mental health community.

Why is this important?

Because there is a gap between health and social care, patient and professional, and existing services are not able to effectively address issues around mental health in Singapore. There is a pressing need to hear the perspectives of those with lived experience to drive the conversation around mental wellness, and to shape action.

More than coping, people in recovery want to thrive in life; and we believe this is possible with a vibrant and supportive community that develops practical solutions and initiatives that can be adopted by the wider community.

Beyond addressing the stigma surrounding mental health, we aim to provide social support for people in recovery and empower individuals to take charge of their mental health.
