Mental Wellness: Local and Global Approaches
Ms Wong Soon Fen

What is mental wellness? How do we define ‘(ab)normal’? How do communities across different countries and cultures perceive and promote mental health and resilience? How do the government, society and family contribute to mental wellness? What roles can medical approaches, mindfulness and mindsets play? This module explores the key concepts and approaches to mental wellness across disciplines, ideologies and cultures. We will examine different perspectives in Singapore and beyond to appreciate the mental health landscape at the global, local and individual levels.
