Mental Health 101 is a 90-minute interactive awareness session that provides general information about mental health and mental illnesses. This session explores how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, how to access mental health services, the basics of active listening, and tips for self-care. These sessions are conducted by Community Outreach Volunteers who are equipped with skills related to psychological wellbeing and mental health literacy. The content and activities included in the session are adapted to the age of the participants.

Information Booths are provided to the public in community events such as festivals, fairs, markets and conferences.
