Webinar: The State of Mental Health in Singapore
- 30 Jul 2021, Tuesday
- 3.00pm - 4.00pm (SGT)
In recent years, there has been increasing emphasis on the importance of mental health. Depression is one of the leading causes of disability, and suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29 year-olds. People with severe mental health conditions die prematurely as much as two decades early due to preventable conditions. In this session, we brought together notable industry leaders to discuss the state of mental health in Singapore and the technological innovations and efforts to raise mental health awareness. The speakers shared their insights on how to increase access to quality mental health care and effective treatments, taking into account the pre and post COVID-19 mental health landscape. The event is jointly organised with SGInnovate, in support of SG Women in Tech.
