“As counsellors, we journey with our clients, really wanting to increase their self-awareness and emphasize to our clients that they do have some level of power and control over their lives…”
In our latest story from Stories from the Heart initiative, we would like to share about empowerment. Ms Tan Jui Wei, a Rehabilitation Counsellor of Integrated Employment Services from Singapore Anglican Community Services (SACS), believes in empowering persons with mental health conditions reintegrate back into society through employment support.

We believe by empowering the community, it can increase quality of life.
