Our team of professionals specialises in engaging youths. They help youths and young adults manage mental challenges, realise their full potential and equip them with the knowledge and skills for lifelong mental wellness by providing:

- Fully-subsidised counselling services (for youths aged 13-25)
- Creative activities and experiential learning to cultivate good mental health practices and develop a growth mindset
As a designated Youth Intervention Team (YIT) funded by Agency of Integrated Care (AIC), we also work actively with other youth agencies, schools and community partners to provide holistic case management for the youths and their families.

Ways We Support
Educational Talks and Workshops
We work actively with schools and the community through our outreach and education initiative, Resilience In The Everyday (RITE), that aims to:
- Increase mental health awareness and literacy
- Build resilience in individuals and families through public education
- Promote healthy habits for better mental health and overall wellbeing
Our outreach platforms include: talks, forums, events, workshops, training and social media. Email us for enquiries or collaboration opportunities.
Social Media Outreach
We reach youths through social media to share mental health resources, positive messages and provide an avenue for them to reach out for help and support if they have any concerns.
Mental Health Screening
We conduct mental health screenings for youths to assess and gain insights into their mental wellbeing. This allows us to pick up early signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and point them to relevant resources and support.
Screening sessions are:
- Conducted one-on-one via face-to-face sessions, online video calls or phone calls
- Only available for youths aged 13 to 25
Intervention and Emotional Support
We listen to youths and conduct mental health screenings to assess their needs. This allows our team to determine the most appropriate intervention. Intervention modalities practiced include:
- Individual therapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, etc)
- Group work
- Family sessions
- Step-down care activities (holiday programmes)
The programme lasts for a maximum period of 12 months or 12 individual sessions.
We conduct mental wellness programmes during the school holidays to provide youths with platforms for learning, interaction and support. Being a part of a group allows young people to exchange skills and knowledge with one another, which can help enhance their wellbeing and build resilience.
Our programmes include nagomi art, book binding, creating a self-soothing kit and games day.

It is good to be open and curious about your child’s concerns and reasons for not wanting to seek help. Focus on understanding where he/she is coming from, rather than trying to force him/her to do something he/she may not be quite ready for.
Keep a lookout for these signs when monitoring your mental wellbeing:
- Eating more or less than usual
- Sleeping more or less than usual
- Loss of motivation or interest and/or lower energy levels
- Withdrawal from social circles
- Significant changes in behaviour and mood
For more information, please refer to Carey.
With Huixin’s support and guidance, I feel more capable of managing intense feelings and keeping myself safe. She was there throughout, from actively encouraging me to go to my first polyclinic appointment, to accompanying me to my first psychiatrist appointment at Institute of Mental Health and even visiting me while I was hospitalised.
She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself to recover, and this means a lot to me as I didn’t know anyone else who believed in me before. She makes me think twice about attempting suicide again.
