Venue: 1 Commonwealth Ln, #02-02 One Commonwealth, Singapore 149544
Date and time: 25th March 2023 (Saturday, 1:00pm – 5:30pm)
Aging can be tough for anyone. As a group, we experience psychosocial and health disparities. We will have a facilitated dialogue for sharing experiences, examining common challenges, and to promote psychological well-being as we move forward in the Singapore context. Having lived through the decades, we may need to heal ourselves while also identifying our strengths. Living forward, what are some strategies for our mental health and aging well? We hope that this inaugural group will grow into an ongoing psychosocial support community.
This psychoeducation session is specifically for:
- gay and bi men who are 50 years or older,
- who want to learn about and support themselves and their community, and
- who are Singapore citizens or permanent residents.
This is not for mental health and social services professionals.
Note: Registration is required and will close on 23 March or when full.
