MINDSET Fun Days are activities organised by Jardine Ambassadors to provide mental health clients opportunities to interact with people which in turn seeks to enhance their emotional well-being. In addition, a day out offers their caregivers a well-deserved break. Our Jardine Ambassadors also gain a better understanding through interacting with and meeting the needs of the clients.
In 2017, MINDSET hosted almost 120 clients and caregivers at four Fun Days.
Creating Personalised Shrink Plastic Keychains
Clients from Club HEAL and the Singapore Association for Mental Health gathered at the Mercedes-Benz Center to make personalised shrink plastic keychains. It was a leisurely activity that brings out one’s creativity. Importantly, the participants enjoyed the process of creating their personalised keychains that they could bring home.
A Visit to the Jurong Bird Park
Clients and caregivers from the Institute of Mental Health visited the Jurong Bird Park, enjoying bird shows and the feeding of penguins. The outing was topped with the visit to one of the world’s tallest man-made indoor waterfalls housed within the park.
Customising Hand Crafted Soap
A day of soaps and scents delighted clients and caregivers from the Singapore Association for Mental Health. The group experienced the craft of soap-making and had the opportunity to customise the bars to their preference using natural ingredients such as flower petals and salts.
A Visit to Hay Dairies Goat Farm and Bollywood Veggies
A farm-table dining experience for clients and caregivers from Institute of Mental Health began with a tour of local farms, Hay Dairies and Bollywood Veggies. The group interacted with goats and learnt about different plants and herbs.
