About Campaignends 30 Jun 2021, 11:59 PM
In 2018, the number of suicides in Singapore rose by 10%, with suicide among boys from 10 to 19 at a record high.
Recognising the need for mental health intervention in the community, O'Joy started the BEACON program in April 2020 to provide counselling to vulnerable adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety and suicide ideation.
From April 2020 - March 2021, the program has served 191 vulnerable adults, helping them find new hope in life.
The BEACON program is currently unfunded by the government. It relies entirely on public donations for sustainability. With your help, we will be able to reach out to more of such vulnerable adults struggling with mental health challenges.
Your gift will become a BEACON of light in their darkness.
About the Charity
O'Joy Limited is a non-profit charity that provides psychosocial care to enhance the mental wellbeing of vulnerable seniors and adults.
Amidst the emerging trends of an ageing population in 2004, O'Joy opened its doors and started serving the psychosocial needs of our elderly population via counselling and social work.
in recent years, we noticed the increasing demands for mental health services for young to middle-aged adults. O'Joy acted to fill this gap by starting our BEACON program in 2020. BEACON provides counselling therapy to adults (20 to 49 years old), facing mental health challenges. This was especially timely during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
O'Joy means Oceans of Joy. We hope to bring joy and hope to those we serve through our programmes and services.
O'Joy Limited is a registered charity with IPC status. Your donations will be entitled to 250% tax deduction.
