Empowering people to improve their health and emotional wellbeing
Whether you are looking to improve your own wellbeing or trying to find support for someone you care about, mindline.sg is a good place to start
MOH Office for Healthcare Transformation (MOHT), with its partner organisations Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), National Council for Social Services (NCSS) and Institute of Mental Health (IMH), has developed an interactive website mindline.sg. It is a focal point for resources and tools to help improve the holistic wellbeing of people in Singapore, with an emphasis on stress and coping.
Stress levels are on a rise for everyone, and some of us who face financial, family and health issues may need even more support, which together impact our emotional wellbeing. Recently, these pressures have been worsened by the restrictive measures and a climate of uncertainty brought about by a pandemic. The surge in demand for a variety of help resources has confirmed the challenges faced by our society.
mindline.sg addresses the need for a trusted platform to improve the wellbeing of people in Singapore through technology. The website brings together a wide variety of carefully-curated resources, from across social and healthcare organisations, such as:
Helplines and counselling by phone
Family and Caregiving support
Health and fitness tips
One of the main features of this website is a self-assessment based on a clinically-validated tool, which directs users to the most suitable resources, both self-help links and helplines. Referring users along these pathways of intervention and support, based on self-assessment results, streamlines access to care and support resources. It can also get you someone to talk to when that's what you need. This is much needed as the resources are diverse and many, and it’s not always easy to find the right one.
MOHT is launching this website as a base platform and will add on more customised and newly-emerging resources over the next few months. For example, we plan to deploy an emotionally-intelligent mental wellness app soon. In this way, mindline.sg will be adapted to address the growing needs of the population, thereby providing an evolving palette of resources. While we are a one-stop for the general population today, over time we will also address specific population groups such as, youth, seniors and healthcare workers.
