Let’s Talk, For Real: A Youth Mental Resilience Initiative Panel Dialogue

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 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.

Youths are at higher risk of mental health challenges

According to the 2016 Singapore Mental Health Survey, 1 in 5 youths will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. This number today is likely to be higher.
