MindfulHacks was founded as Singapore's first Mental Health-themed Student Hackathon. It is a 24-hour overnight hackathon where attendees work to build a software project that addresses mental health issues. Our mission is to encourage students to come together and innovate solutions to mental health issues and combat the stigma of mental illness. We welcome students from Universities, Polytechnics, ITEs, and Junior Colleges.

You don't need to have a team formed beforehand - you can form teams during the hackathon. Each team can have up to 4 individuals.
You will need to fill in the email addresses of your team members when you submit your project at the end of the event. We have a team forming segment before the opening ceremony where you can interact with other participants and form teams.
Definitely not! There will be workshops to teach programming skills from beginners without experience to more advanced hackers. Mentors throughout the hackathon will help you personally, and you can also learn from other students!
Nothing! This event, including all workshops, swag, and prizes, is completely free!
We welcome any student studying at a Singapore University, Polytechnic, ITE or Junior College.
Got a question? Send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
