Mental Health through Art
Open call for Beyond the Label art exhibition @ Jewel Changi Airport
Beyond the Label (BTL) is a nation-wide movement started in 2018 by National Council of Social Service (NCSS) which focuses on addressing stigma and promoting social inclusion for persons with mental health conditions (PMHCs).
Led by NCSS and TOUCH Community Services, the agencies under the BTL Collective will work in partnership with stakeholders in the mental health ecosystem to achieve objectives such as:
Raise awareness of stigma and advocate for greater support for persons with mental health conditions;
Educate and equip the public with peer support skills that help them interact and support persons with mental health conditions;
Implement workplace adjustments to support persons with mental health conditions better; and
Encourage those who need help to seek help early.
We are thrilled to announce an art exhibition opportunity at the upcoming Beyond the Label Festival, taking place at Jewel Changi Airport on Friday, September 8, 2023, from 10am to 9pm.
