Suicide is the Number 1 cause of death among those aged 10-29. One Life Lost Is One Too Many. You Can Make A Difference.
The Musim Mas BlueStar* Fund aims to support initiatives that address the mental health needs of children and youth in Singapore.
The 2024 GRANT CALL IS NOW OPEN.
Musim Mas BlueStar* Fund
The Musim Mas BlueStar* Fund seeks to address the escalating mental health challenges among school-going children and youth. Suicide remains the biggest cause of death for those aged 10-29 in Singapore. Highlighted by the 2022 National Population Health Survey, poor mental health rose from 13.4% in 2020 to 17% in 2022. The number of adolescents (ages 13-19) seen at the Institute of Mental Health for depression also rose by approximately 60% between 2015 and 2020.
Blue is more than a colour. It is associated with calm and also sadness. BlueStar* is a reminder that what we feel is real to us, yet emotions are transient. We can feel better with support.
A Star, twinkling bright, evokes feelings of positivity, hope and possibilities. Like the asterisk which calls attention to something important, the BlueStar* calls attention to each of us, to be there for each other.
