REST for WEllness
In partnership with the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) and REACH, TWIS presents to you REST for Wellness!
The "REST for WEllness" programme targets a variety of youths in schools with an upstream principle. Through the program, we hope to spark a positive and sustained shift in attitudes and behaviours youths hold toward their mental health and holistic well-being.
The programme covers extensively researched modules that give a holistic perspective of wellness and wellbeing. After the program, youths will be able to seek help in an appropriate timely manner whilst also understanding methods for coping with stress and skills to support peers alike.
The programme also aims to build a self-sustaining system within the schools through a community building approach where each batch of students are able to participate in future REST for WEllness cohorts as facilitators or helpers.
To demonstrate their learning, youths will present their findings in digital designs and art pieces that will be made into decals and displayed throughout the school to raise greater awareness of such issues.
The programme covers:
Introduction to the Total Wellness Framework
The Stigma of Mental Illness
Understanding Mental Health and Mental Illness
Specific Mental Illnesses
Experiences of Mental Illness and the importance of Family Communication
Seeking Help and Finding Support
The Importance of Positive Mental Health
