About Campaignends 31 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM
2020 was such a tough year and 2021 isn't any better. Just when we thought we have turned the corner, Stabilisation Phase landed on us again. We foresee that mental health issues will continue to rise.
Since April 2021, O'Joy saw a 42% increase in caseload (compared to the same period last year). More people are seeking counselling for mental health issues. Stress, depression, anxiety, and suicide ideation surrounding job insecurity, unemployment, impaired family dynamics or caregiver stress are some of the predominant issues.
Regrettably, we do not yet have government funding for our BEACON program which provides counselling for vulnerable persons with mental health struggles. Yet the demand for our service is increasing. The BEACON program has served 203 clients last year and is currently serving 84 clients. We need your support to sustain our counselling service for mental health.
By supporting our counselling service, you can help many others build mental resilience to tide over these difficult times. To make it better, your gift will be matched by the Tote Board Enhanced Fundraising grant. Your donation is also eligible for 250% tax benefits.
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.
