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.

Thank you for your question. I am a family doctor with special interest in Mental Health. In my experience, the chance of schizophrenia recovering without medications is less than 10% per year. And the chance drops with the duration of the condition. Example: the longer the co...

Some of the effects of hormone replacement therapy are not reversible. To illustrate, many trans men are happy with their voice deepening, and some will report a scratchiness in their throat soon after starting testosterone. The length of vocal cords changes and the timbre of the person's voice h...

Sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling with depression. Certain medical conditions, esp. those affecting the way we look, can definitely affect our self esteem and social lives. While I’m glad to hear that your skin condition has improved with treatment, I do thi...

your description does sound typical of a panic attack. Hyperventilating will make your symptoms worse, as well as cause the tingling and numbness that you’ve described. Try to consciously slow down your breathing for about 20 minutes the next time it occurs. Panic attac...

While I’m certainly not a gynaecologist, it sounds as if your symptoms might have a psychological overlay with anxiety leading to the other issues. It might be worth seeing a therapist who deals with such issues - perhaps with your partner. In some ways it’s a bi...

Hi, I'm glad that you are trying to seek help. Anxiety is not an uncommon psychological condition which many people are reluctant to seek help for. In Singapore, there are GPs who have special interests in helping persons with various psychological conditions like anxiety, depres...

Sorry to hear that you're going thru such a difficult time. Motherhood is a really tough journey, especially when you're juggling work and family commitments without much help! Personally, I think you're doing a great job so far (I'm a mother too, and I don't know how you can do so much without he...

Thank you for sharing your problems. Chest pain and discomfort can be a very scary symptom. For most people, who are used to be in control of life; “suddenly” losing control over their own body can be extremely terrifying. Especially when we might have heard/seen...

Answer: It is still very controversial to say that heart surgery will change a person's personality. However, our brain is under tremendous stress & risks during operation and peri-operative period. Firstly, the patient will be given, sedation, pain killer, anaesthetic age...
