The finals of the Great Via Ferrata Challenge 2011 was held yesterday at Orchard Central to commemorate World Mental Health Day. Organised by Orchard Central and Silver Ribbon (Singapore), participants had to scale a 30-metre wall. Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister of State for Finance and Transport, attended the event and said the stigma that surrounds mental illness is a main reason preventing people from seeking treatment. She said: 'The consequences of untreated mental illness can be shattering, leading to disability, homelessness, unemployment, incarceration and even suicide.' She said discrimination and misconceptions remain among the most significant barriers for people with mental illness participating actively in the community. Photo by Syafiqah Hamid
