There is an increasing number of people in Singapore suffering from mental health condition once in a lifetime. One in six people will suffer any form of mental illness which could be their friends, family members or colleagues.
Bakery Wellness is a social enterprise* that believes baking makes the world a better place to live in and it delivers a unique platform to use pastries as a form of inclusion for mental health.
It’s an awareness movement for people suffering from mental health condition to empower their stories through baking. This inspires the others to destigmatize about mental health.
Baking is a therapeutic way to enhance one’s quality of life, rebuild confidence and relieve anxiety. We want to provide an alternative way to promote mental wellness.
Education plays a crucial role to understand about mental health and mental health knowledge begins with us and others. As mental disorders are difficult topics to talk about, hence we educate the public about mental health issues through social media, events and talks.
