An RC survey found that less than 20% of youths are willing to speak to their parents about their mental health struggles, leading most to search for help without their parents’ knowledge. In contrast, 100% of parents would want their child to speak to them about their struggles.
What is preventing these conversations about mental health between parents and their children?
These findings only emphasise the need for timely mental health conversations to help youths step out of the shadows to seek help and for parents to understand the gravity of their struggles.
To do that, we need your support. Help us to break down these barriers through Let’s Talk, for Real – A Youth Mental Resilience Initiative.
This series of dialogues is part of the Let’s Talk, For Real: A Youth Mental Resilience Initiative which will see youths, parents and community engage in open and meaningful conversations on mental health, and the creation of youth-centric safe spaces and holistic programmes for recovery and support.
The inaugural panel dialogue will be livestreamed from Temasek Shophouse on 28 July, Wed from 5.30pm – 7.00pm.
Register by 27 July, Tues at at https://tinyurl.com/TSH-LTFR and we will be in touch shortly with further details.
Our heartfelt appreciation to Temasek Shophouse and Roxy Foundation for supporting the work that we do in the mental health space.
Stay tuned as we will be unveiling our panelists in the coming weeks!
