Do You M.I.N.D.?
Do You M.I.N.D.? is a programme by TOUCH that uses innovative approaches such as adventure-based experiential learning and virtual reality immersive experience to equip youths with knowledge to mind their mental health. The practical steps highlighted in the programme are:
M – Moderate stress and expectations for a balanced and healthy lifestyle
I – Include persons with mental health issues in their social circles
N – Notice preliminary signs and symptoms of mental health issues in their peers
D – Defend themselves by adopting positive coping habits
The programme also provides intervention services such as counselling and a support group, Upper Room, to enable youths to manage issues affecting them.
Upper Room is a support group for youths facing mental health issues. It aims to strengthen these youths by equipping them with positive coping strategies and habits. The Upper Room provides a safe environment for youths to openly share about their mental health issues. Sessions will be conducted by TYI staff and facilitated by volunteers.
