Description of Organization

The Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH) is a community mental health agency that has been uplifting lives since 1968. We have a multi-disciplinary team of trained and dedicated staff who have supported hundreds of clients and reached out to several thousands of people every year. They come from all walks of life including youths, adults, and seniors. With a vision to promote mental wellness for all, our comprehensive range of programmes in rehabilitation, outreach, and creative services seek to help everyone on their mental health journey.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

“With the rising concerns on youth mental health, we need to promote mental health literacy among youths and provide the avenue for them to seek help when the need arises. We hope to provide more services to support youths facing emotional and mental distress and enhance our youth mental well-being and resilience.

Funds raised will go towards SAMH’s upstream preventive programmes and rehabilitation services that support individuals in recovery and their caregivers, and those at-risk of mental illness. ”


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

“Teams participating with SAMH can expect to be:

– Introduced and oriented to the work of SAMH.
– Mentored through the entire YFC journey and learn to take ownership of mental health concerns in the community and be multipliers in influencing other youths’ involvement.
– Equipped with the knowledge of Trauma-informed care, as well as the necessary help resources.

Start with yourself and initiate a change in your school community today. ”
