#ifeelyoubro – Don’t Suffer In Silence
According to Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) in 2019, 2 out of 3 suicides recorded in Singapore were males.
Not wanting to appear weak or wishing to be a burden to anyone, as well as stigma in society, men are pressured to suffer on their own and in silence.
In our talk, Egan from Calm Collective speaks with Lino Felix and Ron Yap about: how they’ve sought professional help for their mental health, their experience as mental health advocates, and how we might encourage more men to be comfortable with opening up and taking that first step towards help.
This talk is co-presented with Beyond The Label, for BTL Fest 2021.
