Our Own Voices: A Collection of Singaporean Mental Health Journeys

Sunaina Suri

Why do so many of us find it difficult to seek treatment for our mental health? What are our neighbours, friends, or even our own family members actually going through? How can we understand each other's situations better? Our Own Voices is a compilation of stories and poems about mental health from individuals. These stories cover various mental health conditions including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, postpartum depression, eating disorders, psychosis, social anxiety and sexual trauma. This book guides us to reflect on what we know -- and what we thought we knew -- about mental health. These stories highlight the ways we can confront mental health issues. There is no universal quick-fix solution, but that once you find what helps you, the journey is especially rewarding. The key is to find what works for YOU. By sharing our stories, we can reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and create a more understanding, introspective and empathetic future.
