The Majurity Trust (TMT) commissioned Research For Impact (RFI) to conduct a research project on youth mental health.
This project is timely as parents, educators, and policymakers in Singapore are increasingly concerned about youth mental health. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic such as the economic downturn, extended home-based learning and limitations on in-person interactions, have also introduced sharpened uncertainties and anxiety amongst our youth.
This study sought to understand where and why youths aged 10-18 in Singapore seek out support and assistance for mental health, and their wants and needs – from both youth and parental perspectives.
These findings can prompt discussions on how to move ahead by clarifying what parents and youths care about, on which issues they can find common ground on, and where they differ.
