Promote Mental Health Wellness
Mental health is often disregarded and overlooked by many in their day-to-day activities. Mental health affects the way we converse with one another, the way we think and the way we behave.
1 in 7 people experience mental illness in Singapore and, this number has been increasing over the years.
As Singaporeans experience this increasing phenomenon, they are afraid to seek help due to the current stigma commonly associated with mental health conditions.
However, with greater awareness in recent times surrounding mental health wellness, AnistarCare seeks to promote mental health wellness and support you in every way.
How can we help you?
