Director's Message

Hey CAPTains, welcome to CAPT Support!

We are a community of CAPTains who are passionate about mental health and care for your mental wellness. Our dream is that not only our members, but every single CAPTain, can be a compassionate supporter.

Through our training sessions, we educate our Supporters on mental health issues and empower Supporters with peer supporting skills. From there, we organise campaigns to advocate for mental health and to create safe spaces for honest conversations to happen.

We hope that through these we may foster a culture of mutual care and understanding in CAPT, where CAPTains can support and be supported. Join us!

Semester 1 and 2

End Of Semester Surveys

To gauge how well CAPTains understand mental health, find out how they are doing and how CAPT can help. For example, we would ask CAPTains how else they would like to destress aside from what CAPT already provides, and we could consider the different suggestions mentioned. CAPT Support will also use the survey to gauge what kind of content CAPTains are interested in, and through which platforms.

Semester 1

Movie Night

Screened Inside Out to introduce Zone Supporters and allow CAPTains to destress

Zone Campaigns

Theme of the campaign was self-care. When zoning was still implemented, each zone had one or two campaign groups to encourage people to self-care so that they will not be burnt out too easily.

Semester 2

Vulnerability Campaign

In CAPT, there is a common perception among CAPTains that there is a need to display a positive side to everyone else. Through the vulnerability campaign, we collected responses from CAPTains anonymously, asking vulnerable questions such as “When was the last time you cried?”.

We shared the responses with other CAPTains through a video and a coffee booth initiative. The objective was to share with CAPTains that their neighbours are struggling too, thus it is okay to be vulnerable with each other and support one another. Some of these issues may be very relatable as well, sparking conversations and sharings among CAPTains
