Worlds Apart: A Conversation About Mental Health
Written by Wayne Rée
Illustrated by Nurjannah Suhaimi
A conversation starter for those who are keen to understand and reach out to people living with mental health conditions
It’s been a while since you caught up with Charissa. You finally – finally! – find the
time to meet your friend for coffee, but after the usual pleasantries, she opens up to you.
She’s been diagnosed with depression. A moment like this can feel like a fork in the road. Will it lead to an emotionally rewarding conversation or... cause a lot of confusion and awkwardness?
Many of us still largely choose not to talk about mental health – and that often breeds misconceptions and social stigma. Join Charissa as she guides you through these unfamiliar territories and terrains that can be difficult to navigate.
Worlds Apart: A Conversation About Mental Health helps us understand misconceptions, taboos, and common concerns surrounding mental health, and includes useful resources on how to get help and support for mental health conditions in Singapore.
Let the conversation begin.
Each copy of Worlds Apart: A Conversation About Mental Health comes with a
postcard and envelope set that readers can use to reach out to those they care for.
Read if you: have set your auto-reply to "Don't think too much about it" when someone shares their problems with you.
