Mental Health Check

  • I am suicidal and I cannot keep myself safe. Can I come to CHAT?
    It takes courage to admit you are struggling. We are glad you are reaching out for help and looking for ways to hold on to life. As much as we hope to support you in these times of high distress, we believe your needs require more immediate attention and we urge you to:
    • Call 999 or the Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) at 1800-221-4444 (Both operate 24/7). Stay on the phone with them until someone comes to you.
    • Or, head down to the Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department of the nearest hospital for someone to attend to you.

    What is this mental health check about?
    It is a confidential face-to-face consultation with our qualified mental health professionals, available for young people aged 16-30 currently residing in Singapore. Through this session, you could gain an understanding of your mental wellbeing and get the help you need. We can also link you up to the appropriate support if you are agreeable.

    Where is the mental health check done?
    In CHAT Hub, located at *Scape #05-05.  

    When is the mental health check done?
    Tuesday to Friday afternoons. Each session takes about an hour.
    If you cannot make it at these times, let us know your schedule and we will try to work something out.

    How do I make an appointment?
    There is an online form for you to fill up. We may contact you within 3 working days to clarify your responses. Most people will complete their face-to-face mental health check within two weeks of contacting CHAT.

    I am not ready to make an appointment but I am concerned about my mental health. Is there an alternative?
    We admire this step that you are taking to look out for resources for your mental wellbeing. Yet, going for a face-to-face mental health check may seem daunting to some. You may consider calling us at 6493 6500/01 or clicking on the webCHAT icon to speak to us. Our webCHAT operates from Tuesday to Friday, 1-8pm.
