Happiness Initiative partners MCCY to launch community well-being programme Well-Being Circles
Participants can learn to take charge of their own mental well-being through the programme.
Social enterprise Happiness Initiative has partnered with the Ministry of Culture Community and Youth (MCCY) to launch Well-Being Circles, a community well-being programme on Jun 28 (Tuesday).
The Well-Being Circles programme aims to bring the community together to learn well-being skills through sharing, reflection and social support. It will also offer research insights that can potentially inform policy directions and shape Singapore’s well-being landscape.
Participants will go through 12 two-hour sessions covering various well-being skills over a span of four months, starting on Aug 2. They will learn skills that revolve around five core themes — Mindset, Passion, Purpose, Relationships and Altruism, which one can apply to their daily lives.
The sessions will be delivered in a small group format consisting of one facilitator to four participants. Participants will learn to take charge of their mental well-being by providing a safe space for others to talk about their struggles, learn from one another and be equipped with transformative well-being skills.
The programme is open to all members of the public aged 18 years old and above. Admission is free.
Minister Of State for MCCY Alvin Tan said that this initiative aims to “empower our citizens with the ability to look after their well-being and to strengthen our social capital”.
Happiness Initiative will also organise an information session on Jul 7 to share more about the programme. Interested participants can RSVP for it via their website.
