Singapore Association for Mental Health

YouthReach provided community-based support to youths with severe mental challenges and their families. These challenges included schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The programme worked with family members, caregivers and other community partners to help the child develop social and functional competencies to function safely within the family and the community. Temasek Foundation also provided funding to enhance the programme with a 24-hour helpline and a mentorship component.

More than 200 youth and their families had benefited from this programme.
