Grassroots organisations, health groups educate residents about mental health

Grassroots organisations are working with health groups to educate residents about mental health issues.

A Mental Resilience Day will be held at Bukit Batok Community Centre this Sunday for people to learn and share about mental health. It will run from 9am to 5pm and is organised in support of World Mental Health Day, which was on Oct 10.

Free physical and mental health screenings will be available as well as lectures by experts on relaxation and how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Member of Parliament (Choa Chu Kang GRC) Zaqy Mohamad will attend the event while Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob is guest-of-honour at the event.
