Our Youth Beneficiary - A Human Library Experience

The Youth Beneficiaries of Acting Up are stepping out of shadows and stepping onto an online platform to share personal experiences of recovery. Exploring themes such as drug addictions, social struggles and mental health afflictions, our youth aim to debunk the myth of a "beautiful" recovery.. and share how struggles can be managed by every tiny success. "Readers" have an an opportunity to interact, ask questions and affirm our youths during the discussion forums. Each session will be moderated by staff from Acting Up. Come journey with us we trudge through tough times together.

Acting Up is a social enterprise that provides therapeutic follow up for youth at no cost to them. We are not funded by any organizations and rely fully on our workshop and courses to fund our projects and initiatives. Acting Up works with fellow community partners to provide employment, guidance and mentorship for youth in need. In turn, our Youth reach out to others in need through social projects. We would appreciate any amount of donation to ensure no young person is left behind during tough times. Kindly contact May at admin@actingupsingapore.com if you like to make a donation. Thank you for your kindness!

About our Human Book

She writes poetry and short stories as a way to release her emotions, to connect with other people living with the same pain as she does. She hopes to let them know that they're not alone. A passionate mental health advocate, Kay hopes to be able to spread awareness about coping through the use of creative arts, and how it serves as a safe and therapeutic channel while healing.
