MENTAL: Colours of Wellbeing is not an exhibition about mental illness, treatments or cures. It is a welcoming place where you can confront societal bias and stereotypes around mental health. MENTAL invites you to embark on an intimate and personal journey that explores the many different ways of being, surviving and making connections, that have become of increasing importance to us all.

This exhibition features 24 interactive exhibits, art projects and large-scale installations by international artists, makers, scientists and designers that reflect a range of perspectives on mental health and ways of being. In addition, there are seven artworks by Singaporean and Southeast Asian artists that explore mental health from a uniquely Southeast Asian perspective.

Seasons of Bloom, the finale floral display marking Gardens by the Bay's tenth anniversary, pays tribute to the various seasons of flowers that Flower Dome has brought to visitors over the past decade. Snapdragons for spring, delphiniums for summer, zinnias for autumn and cyclamens for winter – these are just some of the colourful blooms visitors can look forward to.

In a nod to the year-end season, all things yuletide-themed take centrestage in the middle of the flower field. Towering over a landscape of snow is a dramatic Christmas tree made out of poinsettias, and an ice cavern houses beautiful seasonal blooms poignantly "frozen" in icicles – a unique collaboration with Ikebana International Singapore. In a season that is about giving, 10,000 Christmas ornaments used in the floral display have been handpainted by beneficiaries from the Salvation Army and Gardens by the Bay's volunteers. Gardens by the Bay also continues its Christmas tradition of collaborating with the Embassies of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
