About Campaign

Blamed. Insulted. Helpless. This is how Michelle (not her real name) described herself during the first years caring for her daughter suffering from severe depression. Struggling to deal almost daily with her daughter’s mood swings, bad temper and panic attacks, Michelle was hardly coping.

Michelle battled on her own for several years, until she learned about Caregivers Alliance and joined their Caregivers-to-Caregivers Training Programme. After only a few sessions, Michelle used some of the strategies learned to communicate better with her daughter. Michelle was also able to get emotional support from Caregiver Alliance’s caregiver leaders and other caregivers who were on similar journeys as she was. Michelle’s relationship with her daughter improved, and so did her daughter’s condition.

Supported. Appreciated. Stronger. This is how Michelle describes herself today. Thanks to the work of Caregivers Alliance.

About The Charity

Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL) is a professional non-profit organisation in Singapore dedicated to meeting the needs of caregivers of persons with mental health issues and dementia through education, support networks, crisis support, tailored services and self-care enablement. While there are other organisations providing support to the community affected by mental health issues, only CAL focuses exclusively on supporting caregivers with professional services.

CAL was incorporated on 25 October 2011. Our founding members are Singapore Anglican Community Services, Caregivers' Association of the Mentally Ill and BinjaiTree Limited.

CAL is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC), which reflects that it is exclusively non-profit in nature. In 2019, CAL won the Charity Governance Award 2019 (medium charities category), awarded by the Charity Council in recognition of it having adopted the highest standards of governance, in line with the Code of Governance for Charities & IPCs.
