We are Team Psych, a group of six clinical psychologists (Brian Poh, Jason Tan, Jeanie Chu, Michelle Neo, Michelle Tan, and Patrick Phor) who met at the NUS Clinical Psychology Masters program.
In the course of our work, we have witnessed how mental health conditions bring about pain and suffering for our clients. Family, community and social support are vital for recovery, yet this is often hampered by the presence of stigma within our society.
Our team strongly believes in promoting positive mental health, and reducing the stigma of mental health conditions.
Every year, we participate in the Ekiden (relay) Race of the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) to raise awareness for our cause. This December, we want to rally around our clients by running the race in a special t-shirt to promote our cause again.
None of us are professional runners, yet we are determined to put in our best and finish the race, to let our clients know that we will always be there for them.
Support us by donating generously to our beneficiary, Club Heal! For more information, please visit www.clubheal.org.sg.
You can also help us by spreading the word about this page, so that more people get to know about our cause. Thank you.
Club HEAL provides services to peers (people with mental health issues) and their caregivers. Founded in 2012, the organisation has been been advocating understanding of mental health issues though public talks, forums, volunteer training sessions to destigmatise mental illness while empowering peers to regain confidence in themselves and others in their journey towards community reintegration.
