Our counselling services are by donation and appointment basis. While it is not compulsory to give, we encourage our clients to offer any amount they are comfortable with as the amount collected goes into supporting our programmes and services. Please call our toll-free helpline: 1800 283 7019 (Mon – Fri, 9am to 1pm, 2 – 6pm) if you require further support or information on mental health issues.

Art therapy (one-to-one / group) addresses different issues relevant to the participant(s), through the use of art. Art as therapy is done through our art skills sessions or open studio, where participants get to relax and de-stress through free expression, exercising their creativity spontaneously, or learning an art skill.

  • Donations

  • We suggest you refer them to professional help by accompanying them to the Polyclinic or a General Practitioner for an assessment.
  • We have a Mobile Support Team which can be reached at 8511 2678. They offer case management and assessment services, and can go to the homes of the individual together with the referrer to assess the situation further.

We have two centres dedicated to serving youths:

  • Creative SAY!, was set up as a preventive and wellness centre, to build resilience in youths through the use of creative means like arts and sports.
  • YouthReach works with youths diagnosed with mental health issues through holistic case management and activities to engage these youths.

Volunteers can:

  • Run sessions to teach our clients skills

We require volunteers during office hours the most, and would appreciate it if you can commit for at least 6 months.
