I'm A Psychologist In Singapore With A Special Interest In Stress, Anxiety, And Mood-Related Disorders, AMA!
Meet Dr Matthew Woo, a clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience. He has a special interest in the area of stress, anxiety, and mood-related disorders.
Did you know that about 10% of the population in Singapore suffer from anxiety and depressive disorders? Many people with psychological conditions suffer in silence. This can affect their relationship with their families and their work performance.
However, with proper medical and psychological management, you will be able to manage your emotions more effectively, improve your relationships and communication, bolster your confidence and self-esteem, and minimise your distress.
Join his live AMA on Friday, 14 December, from 1:00- 2:30 PM as he answers all your questions you have on any psychological conditions.

For young people in their 30s and 40s, getting struck with colorectal cancer is simply shocking. At the prime of their lives and at the peak of their careers, they are diagnosed with a potentially fatal disease.
I wrote this article to help shed some light on colorectal cancers in young people. I want to explain the cause and characteristics of this cancer, and what you can do to detect the cancer early.
