WHO WE ARE
Mental ACT is a non-profit organisation established in 2017 by Nisha, a psychotherapist and Devan, a social worker – 2 Singaporean Indians with the strong passion for addressing mental and emotional health issues.
The genesis behind Mental ACT is a belief that with continued efforts we can successfully address the social stigma that the South Asian community has on mental health issues.
