Since 2016, various agencies and community partners have co-organized events to commerate World Mental Health Day in October. This year, emcee Jim Koh was invited to host for the carnival, bringing about greater awareness of mental wellness to the visitors. There was also a segment where visitors can dedicate songs to their loved ones during the event!
The participating partners include agency for integrated care, institute of mental health, national council of social service, MINDSET care limited, Clarity Singapore, Alzheimer’s Disease Association, Caregivers Alliance Limited, Club HEAL, OCD Network, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Singapore Anglican Community Services, Silver Ribbon (Singapore)

The event was also graced by grassroots adviser, Mr Heng Chee How.

Venue: Outside Westgate
It was a very meaningful one week long exhibition outside Westgate. This time round, MCYC Community Services launched its foster parents campaign, hoping to demystify some falsehoods about foster care.
The roadshow had exhibition panels about how the lives of children are transformed because of the love from their foster parents. Some of the members of the public were so touched that they started tearing while reading the excerpt from the exhibition panel.
Emcee Jim Koh engaged the members of the public with snippets of info bites and played games with them. There were also complimentary balloon services and pop-corn for the young who visits!
