In this week’s episode of WomenTalk Pulse, we have the absolute pleasure of speaking with Zhong Pei Rong, the founder of Bakery Wellness, a social enterprise in Singapore which uses baking as a tool to open up important conversations about mental health issues. Diagnosed with mild bipolar disorder a year back, Pei Rong’s journey towards recovery has been a lonely one fraught with various difficulties. Despite this, Pei Rong has never let her illness define her life. Motivated by her own personal struggles and with the support of her loved ones, she chose instead to speak up about her own experiences as a way to form meaningful connections with others suffering from mental health challenges. She hopes to break the silence around such issues in Singapore by using food as an unique platform through which to share her story, and in the process, create greater public awareness about mental wellness.
