An Inside Look – From Illness to Wellness Event Report

For two hours on 22 May 2014 at AS7-01-06, we got an inside look at how people with mental illness move from illness to wellness. Through the recovery stories of two peer specialists, we saw how recovery is possible. And more so, how they are using their stories to inspire others. Through the sharing of Helen Yong, Head of Residential Services, SAMH, we saw through her eyes how a professional caregiver serves, deal with crises and sustains her passion in her work.

All in all, abnormal psychology teaches us the symptoms of and treatment for people with mental illness, “An Inside Look” sought to contextualise book knowledge with lived experiences, leading us to not only look at the “deficits” but appreciate the assets of people with mental illnesses. Illness begins with an “i”, wellness begins with a “we”. “An Inside Look – from illness to wellness” hopes that “we” can partner people with mental illness to create a wellness-centric perspective towards recovery and living.

This event was made possible by strong support from the Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH), partnership with the NUS Psychology Society and the eager audience.

Written by Khoo Yi Feng, facilitator of the event and also the one who first proposed the event (Psychology Major, Year 1)
