Members’ Bonding Session

A few weeks ago, NUS Psychology Society had a Members’ Bonding Session to introduce our Psychology Society members to each other and help them bond via fun dry games at Siloso Beach, Sentosa. At the same time, we hope to instil a sense of belonging in the society by providing an opportunity for members to interact with one another, as well as promote an inclusive society by increasing outreach to members through the event.

The event went smoothly according to plan, and we are happy that despite the low turnout, those who came enjoyed themselves. Here’s a sneak peek of what went down:

Our first game for the day was the sandcastle-making contest. Each team would have to make the tallest sandcastle in a timed-trial, and for each given time, there are mini challenges.

Following the sandcastle contest, we took a short break and played the next game, that was to build a tower/castle of cards.

We ended off the event with a picture of everyone. We would like to thank every single member for coming down on a Saturday and being enthusiastic about playing our games. Hope to see you again and do look forward to more of the society’s events!

Our very first Library of Life is here!!

Are mental disorders as uncommon as one might assume? Or as dramatic as what the media portrays?

As part of our efforts to raise awareness of mental health, join us for our first ever Library of Life! Let’s break down the stigma and hear the stories from our books who have had personal experiences with mental illnesses. Hear their stories, and feel free to engage them in a discussion on topics you are interested in.

5 books will be present for our event covering topics from depression, bipolar disorder, dissociative identity disorder to caregiving for mental illnesses.

Library of life allows you, our reader, to hear their stories in 30-minutes dialogue sessions. After every 30 minutes, you will be able to check out a new book and hear a new story. Our books can only each have a maximum of 6 readers at one time so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
