where to get psychiatric treament

Postby simplemind » Mon, 22 Sep 2014 3:54 pm

i am experiencing heavy depression recently. They say you have to think first what makes you depress and where it start... After careful thinking I think it has been in my system since I was a kid.
But now this depression is affecting my life extremely both in my work and my social life. I do have suicidal tendency but I never tried it.
I am a foreigner here and I wanna know where to get psychiatric treatment. Will it help my problem if I go. Will they give me some anti depression pills to stop my worry?

Psych (ologist and iastrsit) are available as specialist referrals. See your GP for one.

Will it help? It did for me.

No - most likely not. There was thread on here a few years ago and I think it discussed how Adderal / Prozac / Zoloft are not available here.

Institute of Mental Health is one of the reputed hospital in Singapore for mental illnesses. You can see any good doctor there. Don't go Raffles. They just suck money.

If you prefer private specialists, you can try either dr adrian wang or dr brian wong. I believe dr wang is at gleneagles, while dr wong is at mt elizabeth. Stay strong and safe.
