Mental Health

Mental health is the successful performance of mental function, resulting in productive activities, fulfilling relationships with other people, and providing the ability to adapt to change and cope with adversity. 

Mental illness

Mental illness refers to all diagnosable mental disorders—health conditions characterized by alterations in thinking, mood, or behavior associated with distress or impaired functioning.

A person struggling with their mental health may experience this because of stress, loneliness, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, death of a loved one, suicidal thoughts, grief, addiction, ADHD, Cutting, Self-harm, Self-Injury, burning, various mood disorders, or other mental illnesses of varying degrees, as well as learning disabilities.

Therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners or physicians can help manage mental illness with treatments such as therapy, counseling, or medication.

In TCM theory, chronic fatigue syndrome often indicates that the body lacks of “Qi”, “Yin”, “Yang” or blood. With “Qi” and blood deficiency, the organs in our body lacks of nourishment to work efficiently, leading to fatigue. Some pati...

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.

I am sorry to hear that these symptoms have been so troubling for you and affecting your quality of life. Chronic fatigue syndrome is usually diagnosed when no other medical conditions or causes can be found for a person's symptoms of excessive tiredness/fatigue. This sounds lik...

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.

I think there is more than meets the eye. Certainly there are a lot of life changes happening, but finding it hard to meet new people could be devastating for you. You might need to drop by doctor's clinic to see what else can be done. Otherwise, exercise, sunlight and fresh air ...

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.

Thank you M. for your interesting question. I see that you have taken a lot of steps to try to deal with the problem. That is assuming that it is a problem in the first place. Because some people just are born sad and most people do not know their "purpose" in life until much lat...

Dear Rien It looks like you are facing a difficult phase of your life. Is it just stress from school or are there challenges from other areas of your life as well? Some teenagers also have problems arising from their family and from their relationship. If it is so complicated an...

Thank you for asking such a fascinating question. Many cases of gender dysphoria start in childhood as most of us will have a very good idea of our own gender even at a very young age like a few years or so. At age 3, we would begin to develop our own ideas about gender. ...
