PILOT INTAKE FOR MENTALLY LIT PROGRAMME
Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association (SSA)!
The Singapore Scout Association is pleased to be collaborating with the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) to pilot the Mentally LIT Programme. We would like to invite all registered Scout and Venture aged from 15 years to 18 years to participate in this new initiative.
The Mentally LIT Programme is a local adaptation of an existing programme called Mental Health Literacy from Canada (www.mentalhealthliteracy.org) to improve the mental health literacy of our youths. This is done by addressing the following:
- Understanding how to optimize and maintain good mental health
- Understanding mental illnesses and their treatments
- Reducing stigma associated with mental illness
- Enhancing help-seeking behaviours (knowing when and where to seek help)
Please refer to Annex A for further details.
Registration is based on a first-come first-served basis. Kindly register via MSDS’s Youth Programme Registration portal: http://intranet.scout.org.sg by Friday, 6 May 2022. Only accepted registrations will be duly notified.
Kindly contact Ms Lee Pui Ling, Senior Executive (Programme & Partnership) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms Emily Ho, Programme Assistant at email@example.com or call us at 62592858 for any clarifications.
We look forward to your enthusiastic participation.
Thank you and stay safe.
