One Reason Why People Don’t Seek Help for Mental Health

“It is too expensive.”

Based on the 2016 Singapore Mental Health Study, 1 in 7 people in Singapore has experienced a mood, anxiety or alcohol use disorder in their lifetime. The study found that the majority of people with a psychiatric disorder did not seek any professional help.

Besides stigma, mental health literacy and awareness of mental health resources, there are many other reasons why people would not seek help for mental health. Cost of treatment is one of the most common concerns.

The unpredictability and uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting isolation has further intensified the demand for mental health care, but with the plunge into recession, many people have put mental health on the back burner. A Space Between, a co-practicing space that is conveniently located in Tanjong Pagar, provides a turnkey solution.

Apart from its thoughtful designs making it a conducive space to conduct therapy practices, A Space Between saves therapists from the usual overhead which in turn makes treatment less costly for clients.

Therapy fosters help, empowerment, and motivation. Here at A Space Between, we aim to increase access to quality mental health care by supporting both therapists and clients.
