Our Campaign Storyends 04 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
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 this year, the Singapore Association for Mental Health. For more information, please visit www.samhealth.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.
Our past records:
2015- S$1,905.00 raised for Silver Ribbon
2016- $$1,470 raised for Club HEAL
(This campaign is entirely initiated in our personal capacities, and is in no way representative of our employers.)
Established in December 1968, SAMH seeks to promote mental health, to prevent mental illness, and to improve the care and rehabilitation of the mentally ill and the emotionally disturbed.
Your generous contributions will help fund SAMH programmes for promotion of mental wellness, prevention and reduction of mental health concerns, rehabilitation and support for persons with mental illness and support services for caregivers. These programmes will further contribute to the increased mental well-being of people in Singapore.
