A Blur Sotong A Day, Keeps the Frown Away - A Human Library Experience

Description

Synopsis

The focus on mental health has always been on the conditions, disorders, signs and symptoms. In her life, Cherry is well known for her 'can do' attitude, courage and all round positivity. She's never been known to be afraid of anything. "That can't be real, no one is that positive," we hear you think aloud. During this human library session, Cherry shares her 'secret' by looking at mental health from a different perspective. How does one be able to take anything coming their way? How do we turn seemingly negative experiences into positive ones? Come, join us and catch the 'Cherry Vibe'!

Always be yourself, keep smiling in life even if you don't know what the future hold. Leave the past aside and live the moment YOLO (You Only Live Once).
Why frown when you can smile? When issue come just said 'Thank You, Next' !!

About Acting Up
In a bid to raise funds for mental health causes at Acting Up, our Youth Beneficiaries and Community Partners are stepping out of shadows and onto an online platform to share personal experiences of recovery. Exploring themes such as drug addictions, social struggles and mental health afflictions, our youth aim to debunk the myth of a "beautiful" recovery, and share how struggles can be managed by every tiny success. "Readers" have an opportunity to interact, ask questions and affirm our youths during the discussion forums. Each session will be moderated by staff from Acting Up. Come journey with us as we trudge through tough times together.

Fundraising
Acting Up is a social enterprise that provides therapeutic follow up for youth at no cost to them. We are not funded by any organizations and rely fully on our workshop and courses to fund our projects and initiatives. Acting Up works with fellow community partners to provide employment, guidance and mentorship for youth in need. In turn, our Youth reach out to others in need through social projects.

Covid19 has hit us hard, resulting in an inability to sufficiently support our youth beneficiaries in the programmes for and by them. In a bid to raise funds, we are sharing our personal stories of recovery, with the hopes of reaching out to the community as well as raising funds to continue our youth mental health projects.

We would appreciate any amount of donation to ensure no young person is left behind during tough times. Kindly contact Jung Tou at admin@actingupsingapore.com if you like to make a donation.
