Cultured Minds explores the interrelationship between mental health and culture by increasing beneficiaries’ cross-cultural sensitivity on how mental health is perceived in various countries/regions across the world.

By publishing social media posts, website articles, interview videos, as well as hosting livestreams, discussion forums and workshops, we endeavour to:

  1. Encourage beneficiaries to share how mental health is perceived in their respective countries/regions and how the situation could be improved
  2. Share culture-specific stigma (e.g. linguistic, social or philosophical) associated with mental health to enhance cultural literacy amongst beneficiaries
  3. Empower beneficiaries from various cultural backgrounds by introducing culture-specific mental health resources and promoting ways to destigmatise mental health

What I’ve really learnt is that volunteering isn’t about “pitying those in need”, but rather establishing genuine human connections.
I spoke to the lovely Angel who is currently an MSci in Psychology and currently in year 1. We spoke about her role as Project Leader for a Student-Led Project called Cultured Minds, which is a mental health project that tackles the interrelationship between culture and mental health.
