impart mental health care
also known as

Many children and youths combat life and/or psychological adversities in their daily lives. This impacts their mental wellness, which spills over into other domains like education, employment and social relationships.

In response, we bring advocacy and action through our community-based mental health care services,

coming alongside them in the fight.

our programs

Impart is dedicated to enhancing the mental well-being of children and youths within our community. To achieve this goal, we have developed a range of programs tailored to address their unique needs and foster mental wellness. We offer the following programs and services:

challenge

Youths-facing-adversity sometimes struggle to ask for help, or even refuse help when it is offered to them. Some have been cycled through many services, and find it difficult to trust others.

response

IMNA acts as our first line of response. Volunteers are paired with a child or youth facing psychological or life adversities to build motivation and readiness for change through an outreach and engagement model. This service builds emotional safety, enhances resilience, and increases stability in the child/youth’s life.

All referrals go through IMNA before getting bridged to other programmes or organisations.

who is it for?

project cope

challenge

Youths-facing-adversity often respond to their environment through undesirable behaviours (i.e. maladaptive coping strategies) as a result of learned behaviour or unawareness of alternatives.

response

COPE trains volunteers to journeying alongside children and youths to learn adaptive coping strategies. It focuses on equipping children and youths aged 10 - 21 years old with healthy coping strategies in place of extant maladaptive strategies.

These coping skills support children and youths in managing intense emotions, living more fully in the present moment, communicating and expressing oneself effectively, and negotiating relationships.

Making specialised mental health care accessible

advocacy

Advocacy increases the accessibility of therapeutic resources through decommodification. This means that we reduce the barriers to access for valuable mental health resources, and distribute them to the general public.

We do this through social media and short films, where we provide psychoeducation (education on mental health concepts), and equip the public with the same skills we do with our children and youths. It also involves a engagement team that runs campaigns, examples of which include outreach booths and teaching engagements in schools.

IMNA’s (I’M Not Alone) outreach team acts as the first line of response.

 

Volunteers are paired with a child or youth to build motivation and readiness for change through elements from Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).

Continual assessment of the youth’s development takes place throughout the engagement, typically over a 3-6 month period. Frequent check-ins are conducted with relevant stakeholders to ensure a well-rounded picture of the youth’s journey is formed.

IMNA conducts a basic assessment of their needs and risks, working closely with relevant stakeholders (professionals from referee organisations, family members, etc.) to fill the gaps in intervention.

Together with Impart’s staff team, a case trajectory for the child or youth will be determined. The following pathways are typical of a youth’s journey:

  • Continue IMNA

  • Go into Impart Mental Health Care’s Program COPE, which involves volunteers journeying alongside children and youths to learn adaptive coping strategies.

  • Go into Impart Education / Community programmes

  • Bridged to services provided by external organisations

“I know how hard it can feel to be alone,” shares Jas. Struggling herself with depression in secondary school, she believes in the importance of a supportive network and self-coping skills. Today, Jas supports youths with similar struggles of self-harm and suicidal ideation under Impart’s Mental Health Care arm.

"For those who are scared or victims, that they know that they can seek help, because I've been both of them before - the victim and the at-risk person. You can seek help.”

In this video, we spotlight 19-year old Shawal’s voice. Once an impulsive daredevil who chased the thrill of doing things that risked his life, Shawal now hopes to use his story to encourage others to change for the better.
