The Singapore Mental Health Study 2016 reported that the majority of people with a mental disorder did not seek any professional help, with the reasons largely attributed “to inability to recognise the symptoms of a mental illness, and concerns regarding the stigma associated with mental illnesses.” 

The silent struggles have to be given a voice.

The more stories that we can shed light on, the more we can work together to build a compassionate, inclusive society.

Make a short film on mental health/dementia and ignite change through your story.

This competition features workshops with film industry experts to provide the ins and outs of filmmaking and mental health organisations to provide accurate and precise information about Singapore’s mental health landscape.

Your short film should feature at least one of the topics covered by the mental health/dementia organisations.

The 2022 winning short film will be screened at the next Singapore Mental Health Film Festival.
