What is the Project Green Ribbon?

Project Green Ribbon (PGR) is a purpose-driven organization that is dedicated to empowering and educating individuals on the importance of building mental resilience and eradicating social stigma on mental health in our society. The organization hopes to give a voice to the unheard, be a pillar of support and hope to those struggling. 

As part of their pilot initiative, The Unheard, PGR is supporting local youth artists to present and market their art pieces centred on mental health, to build a more inclusive society.
