What We Do
We share first-person mental health stories in Singapore.
The Tapestry Project SG is a non-profit, ground-up initiative that features community mental health narratives ranging from the personal to the professional.
Started by a person-in-recovery, our online platform was launched in January 2014 and continues to inspire hope and challenge negative stereotypes associated with mental health, illness and recovery today.
By sharing heartfelt, authentic narratives, we wish for our readers to see beyond our statistics, and to recognise that behind every statistic is a real person with a story to tell.
It is our goal to have hope and dignity restored to individuals and families who struggle with what is otherwise an “invisible” illness.
We invite you to join in our cause for mental health advocacy and education. Your story matters.
Stories for Connection
Living with mental illness is often alienating and isolating. Tapestry stories, however, bring connection and knit together a community of support and empathy. They also bridge the gap in helping readers find relevant help and resources within our community.
Stories for Education
Tapestry stories address the myths of mental illness, encourage dialogue on mental health issues, and honour the incredible lives touched by mental illness. These encourage personal insight and shed light on a topic that is still considered taboo in Singapore.
Stories for Empowerment
By giving our readers access to first-person insights, tools, processes, and support systems that are available locally, Tapestry stories empower individuals to lead overcoming lives. We believe that recovery begins with us sharing our stories.
We also conduct talks and workshops which reach out to tertiary institutions, workplaces and other communities so as to strengthen mental health awareness and support recovery.
Each story matters to us because we value our authors’ work. To share our stories, please kindly credit the author/story contributor and include the line “This article was originally published on The Tapestry Project Singapore”. Thank you.
This is purely a pro bono initiative and we do not seek donations.
