Mental Health Check

  • CHAT’s mental health check is NOT an emergency resource.   

    For IMMEDIATE crisis help, visit the nearest hospital emergency room or call these 24–hour helplines:
    IMH Mental Health Helpline: 6389-2222 (Operates 24/7)
    Samaritans of Singapore (SOS): 1800-221-4444 



    “I will recommend anyone who just needs to know what’s happening to them to go for CHAT’s mental health check. It’s
    anonymous and free. What I liked most was CHAT didn’t enforce any choice on me.
    They gave me the options and allowed me to choose. They respected me. I could choose to remain anonymous and not be registered anywhere as having depression. Yet if I wanted to, they would write me a referral letter so that I don’t have to answer the same questions again, and consultation fees with a hospital would be cheaper.”

    What is it?  
    CHAT’s free and confidential mental health check helps young people in distress to:
    1) understand what they are experiencing;
    2) find out how to make it better.
     

    Who is it for?
    Those between 16 and 30 years old and are currently living in Singapore. 

    Who will I see during the mental health check?
    You will meet a doctor and a youth worker. Find out more about them here.

    Where is the mental health check done?
    We have it at CHAT Hub  (*SCAPE #05-05).  

    When is the mental health check done? 
    Tuesday-Friday, usually in the afternoon. Each session takes about an hour.
    If you can’t make it at these times, let us know your schedule and we’ll try to work something out.
     

    How do I make an appointment?
    Call us (6493-6500 / 6501), email us (CHAT@mentalhealth.sg) or fill in the online form to make an appointment for yourself or someone you know.
    You can also come to CHAT Hub (*SCAPE #05-05).
    We are open Tuesdays to Saturdays (12-9 pm). 
     

    Most people will complete their mental health check within two weeks of contacting CHAT.
