A community-based mental health service for youth aged 12 to 25 and their parents or caregivers.
More youth today are facing mental health issues. Uncertainties and the ever-changing environment have brought about more insecurities, anxieties, and stress. We encourage young people to enhance their overall wellbeing by paying more attention to their mental wellbeing and reaching out to help resources early.
We offer the following services:
- Mental Health Screening
- Emotional support (coaching & befriending)
- Psychoeducation (individual and group)
- Parenting support
- Counselling & art therapy
Are you feeling down? Are you struggling to cope with stress? Are you concerned about your mental wellbeing? We can help. Contact us for a free and confidential mental wellbeing check conducted by our trained Youth Care staff.
1 pm – 6 pm (Monday – Friday)
Mental Health Literacy
We share youth mental health information and offer mental health literacy and mindfulness programs to schools and organisations working with youth.
Fun learning courses and activities for youth to learn new knowledge and skills, discover talents and form social connections.
Mindful Academic Coaching
A free one-to-one academic coaching to secondary school students to help them in their studies and self-management.
A structured program for students aged 15 and above provides skills and mental resilience development and self-discovery opportunities.
Mental Health Literacy
Mental health literacy is the foundation for mental health prevention, stigma reduction, and increased help-seeking among youth. Promotion and prevention in mental health are not the sole responsibility of mental health professionals alone. Schools, parents and the community have a role to play.
We promote early identification and help-seeking behaviour alongside youth mental health education on common issues and symptoms. We conduct talks and workshops for schools and other organisations working with youth.
The Lighthouse Program is our signature mental health program for schools in partnership with Tan Tock Seng Hospital Psychiatry Dept and Harvard Medical School’s Dr Sara Lazar.
The three workshops are:
- Mental Well-being by Dr Jerome Goh, Clinical Director, Division for Central Health and Senior Consultant, Psychiatry Department, Tan Tock Seng Hospital
- The Brain Science by Dr Sara Lazar, Associate Researcher in Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital and Assistant Professor in Psychology, Harvard Medical School
- Mindfulness to Reduce Stress by Adj. A/Prof Angie Chew
The pandemic has caused more young people to feel isolated. More than a year of home-based learning and virtual interaction would have limited many young people’s social development. Hence, providing more opportunities for them to come together to learn and develop social skills through activities is crucial.
We organise various activities for students. These fun learning activities are held for youth to discover and harness talents, form social connections and develop life skills. Activities include movement and dance, information technology, art & craft and communications.
Mindful Academic Coaching
In addition to academic coaching, this program also aims to help students with studying, social, emotional and communication skills.

We offer a structured program for students aged 15 and above. This internship aims to develop students’ work skills and other provisions to help them develop mental resilience.
Skills development: Each intern is attached to a team in Brahm Centre to support the team’s work. The interns learn work skills and attend workshops to develop soft skills.
Self-discovery: Interns attend group art therapy and other workshops to understand themselves better.
Coaching: Each intern is assigned a personal coach who provides guidance and emotional support. The coach also helps the intern explore their strengths, aspirations and motivation to work towards their goals.
Mental resilience: Each intern must attend a mindfulness course to develop resilience and reflect on their work experience to gain insights.
