Youth Service launched their joint major project in collaboration with Interact Coordinating Committee (ICC) - Project Accendo. Accendo is a latin word for to illuminate, and the project hopes to illuminate and elevate the awareness of youth surrounding mental health, including understanding early detection and intervention.
According to the Singapore Mental Health Study 2016, one in seven adults have experienced a mental health condition in their lifetime. More than three-quarters of people with a mental health condition in their lifetime did not seek any professional help.
This major project will be held on 21 March 2020, carnival style, with booths, talks and interactive fringe activities, run in partnership with numerous organizations including SOS, IMH, Clarity, Resilience Collective, Brahm Centre, NCSS, Club HEAL etc.
