Very nice Senior Consultant Professor I ever experienced. Prof Ng used to treat me when I was in SGH and he always have this voice and his face is "magical" enough to calm me down. Very engaging Prof Dr, unlike most Prof who are more interested in their research than their patients. Worth my resp...

The Best Tips From A Singaporean Psychiatrist On How To Take Care Of Your Mental Health
The Best Tips From A Singaporean Psychiatrist On How To Take Care Of Your Mental Health

Mental health is more than just a diagnosis. It doesn't only refer to psychiatric or psychological disorders that require actual medical attention. 

It's about your overall mental health—how you feel about yourself, your ability to manage your emotions, and navigate whatever is going on in your life. 

Sometimes, you might find yourself stuck in negative thoughts due to difficult moments in your life. A 21-year-old reader asked a question on DxD's QnA platform, seeking advice on what he should do to improve his emotional health.

Dr Ng Beng Yeong, DxD's resident psychiatrist offered some pearls of wisdom on how you can reclaim your true self in the face of such challenges.

A Psychiatrist Explains How Depression Is Diagnosed And Treated In Singapore
A Psychiatrist Explains How Depression Is Diagnosed And Treated In Singapore

We are all familiar with negative emotions. Depression, however, is something quite different. It’s estimated that over 300 million people suffer from depression (that's equivalent to 4.4% of the world’s population).

The Singapore Mental Health Study conducted in 2010 revealed that 5.8% of the adult population in Singapore suffered from Major Depressive Disorder at some point in their lives.

How is depression dealt with in Singapore from a medical perspective? Psychiatrist and active DxD member, Dr Ng Beng Yeong, answered several questions related to depression. These are some of his key points.

How Do You Know If Gender Dysphoria Is Not Just A 'Phase'? A Psychiatrist Gives You The Low-Down
How Do You Know If Gender Dysphoria Is Not Just A 'Phase'? A Psychiatrist Gives You The Low-Down

The generation of today is increasingly challenging conventional gender stereotypes. A massive poll done in the USA revealed that 50% of millennials believe that gender is actually a spectrum.

In Singapore, gender fluidity is not often talked about. Gender dysphoria refers to the distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth. This leads to them feeling very disconnected between their sense of self and body. Could gender dysphoria simply be a phase?

Psychiatrist Dr Ng Beng Yeong delved further into this topic on DxD. Here's what he had to share.

Will Stopping Your Antidepressant Medication Lead To Withdrawal Symptoms? This Singaporean Psychiatrist Explains
Will Stopping Your Antidepressant Medication Lead To Withdrawal Symptoms? This Singaporean Psychiatrist Explains

Antidepressants are drugs used to treat patients with depressive disorders. While they're carefully prescribed by doctors to help patients feel better, it's not uncommon for patients to develop 'side effects' when they stop taking the medications. 

Lexi, a 20-year-old female asked a question on DxD's question and answer platform. She was on antidepressants on 2 months, and has stopped taking her antidepressants for 2 weeks.

Recently, she has been experiencing nauseousness and migraines and she wanted to know if her nauseousness and migraines are withdrawal symptoms. 

Dr Ng Beng Yeong, a psychiatrist, responded to her question based on his extensive experience in the field. Here's what you should know before popping those pills.

Can Police "Catch You Go IMH?" This Singaporean Psychiatrist Shares His First-Hand Insights
Can Police "Catch You Go IMH?" This Singaporean Psychiatrist Shares His First-Hand Insights

Involuntary hospitalisation is something that's rarely talked about in Singapore. 

A DxD reader sent in a question to find out if he could be detained at IMH by force if they feel that his condition has worsened. 5 years ago, he sought treatment at IMH for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). However, he discontinued the treatment because he felt that the medication was not helping him. 

Dr Ng Beng Yeong, a renowned psychiarist in Singapore shared his expert advice with our reader on this issue. 

Hint: Yes, in certain cases, you can be forcibly hospitalised under Section 10 of the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act (MHCTA).

It must be challenging for anyone to try to contain a family member's behaviour when he or she is in the manic phase as their energy level is high and their mood is elevated. Oftentimes the manic individual will have unusual ideas, e.g., that he or she is extremely wealthy (and would start to give...

The amount of sleep that a person needs is dependent on a number of factors. First, his or her age. Babies, for instance, tend to sleep many hours in day. Second, the amount of aerobic activities that he or she does in the daytime. Odd job labourers and sportsmen tend to sleep more hours and have ...
