What started off as a public consultation exercise to support then-Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) Anthea Ong’s preparation for the Budget 2020 debate focusing on mental healthcare and well-being has now turned into a fully-fledged community initiative in SG Mental Health Matters.

As it continues its efforts to advocate for this important facet of life, especially in the face of the current COVID-19 global pandemic, SG Mental Health Matters is running another public poll, #AreWeOkay, to check in with the community and create a safe space for conversations about mental health.

The poll focuses on how Singapore has been coping during these difficult times, and the results will be shared with the public as well as relevant stake holders. You can take part in the conversation and answering the question of #AreWeOkay by answering this OPPi poll here.

The SG Mental Health Matters movement has evolved from seeking public consultation to now focusing on raising awareness on the key issues surrounding mental healthcare, becoming a coalescing point for mental wellness advocacy, modelling the standards of transparency for future public consultation on the issue, and providing a platform for Singaporeans to have conversations about mental health in a constructive and supportive manner.
