Voice Up is the theme of Jardine's 2019 Walk Up Jardine House, an annual charity event to raise funds for MINDSET. MINDSET is Jardine's registered charity organisation dedicated to supporting mental health sufferers in their recovery and their families who may be impacted.
Our whimsical phone booth will offer people a way to voice their support and capture their message in a beautiful artwork that they will be able to share either with their friends directly or through social media. Together, we want this fun activity to encourage more people to reduce discrimination against mental health sufferers and inspire acceptance to help sufferers on their recovery journey.
Voice Up is touring around the Jardine's Group Companies to increase awareness and promoting mental well-being internally.

"There's no health without mental health!" Below are 10 practical ways to look after your mental health.
Talking about your feelings can help you stay in good mental health and deal with times when you feel troubled.
Regular exercise can boost your self-esteem and can help you concentrate, sleep, and look and feel better. Exercise keeps the brain and your other vital organs healthy, and is also a significant benefit towards improving your mental health.
A change of scene or a change of pace is good for your mental health.
It could be a five-minute pause from cleaning your kitchen, a half-hour lunch break at work, or a weekend exploring somewhere new. A few minutes can be enough to de-stress you. Give yourself some 'me time'.
Your brain needs a mix of nutrients in order to stay healthy and function well, just like the other organs in your body. A diet that's good for your physical health is also good for your mental health.
We often drink alcohol to change our mood. Some people drink to deal with fear or loneliness, but the effect is only temporary.
When the drink wears off, you feel worse because of the way the alcohol has affected your brain and the rest of your body. Drinking is not a good way to manage difficult feelings.
Establish and maintain relationships with others in the society. Share the bits and pieces in your daily life with others.
Engage in activities that can further develop your strengths or talents and maximise your potential. Achievement boosts your self-esteem. Learn something new that you like and turn them into your hobbies.
We're all different. It's much healthier to accept that you're unique than to wish you were more like someone else. Feeling good about yourself boosts your confidence to learn new skills, visit new places and make new friends. Good self-esteem helps you cope when life takes a difficult turn.
Express your appreciation, gratitude or encouragement to others more frequently. Be kind and supportive to others. Caring for others is often an important part of keeping up relationships with people close to you. It also built your support network.
None of us are superhuman. We all sometimes get tired or overwhelmed by how we feel or when things don't go to plan. If things are getting too much for you and you feel you can't cope, ask for help. Your family or friends may be able to offer practical help or a listening ear.
If you have suspected mental health problems, local services from Integrated Community Centre for Mental Wellness are there to help you.
