Over-The-Rainbow Mental Wellness Festival (OTR MWF) is a youth-centric bi-annual event, organised and presented by YOUth Matters — an outreach initiative of Over-The-Rainbow. We engage the youth community through a series of talks, workshops and activities that are curated with youths in mind on the themes, topics to use of varying platforms and tools. Programs are organised for both online and face-to-face (when we can). With funding and your support, we are able to make this a FREE to attend event for the community.

The YOUth Matters (YM) initiative was launched 2019 training youths to become holistic change-makers and provide a canvas for volunteers to apply what they have learned and actualise the change they wish to see in society with community engagement goals. A key differentiator from other projects is that they are co-created, organised and executed by youths, for youths. Programs presented by YM are designed to empower youth in the communities with tools for self-care and mental wellness. To-date, YOUth Matters programs has trained over 40 youth ambassadors and reached more than 300 young people across the island from schools, youth centres to community events. Together with our youth change-makers, and with your help in one way or another, we can continue empowering all youths in their mental wellness journey!
