Our panel will be comprised of the following guests:


Eunice Lin - Moderator

Eunice loves a good conversation and a good coffee, especially when they come together! A social worker by profession, she is passionate about comforting the disturbed and disturbing the comfortable. She believes we all come with assumptions that must be unpacked so that we can better connect and engage meaningfully.


Joey Hong - Panelist

After working in different industries, Joey's wife advised him to take up counselling as a career as she had enough of him trying out new stuff. He has a Masters in Professional Counselling and has been working with teenagers as a counsellor in a school setting for about 10 years. Joey and his wife have 3 children aged 15 years old, 13 years old and 11 years old.

Serena Quay - Panelist

Serena is a senior-year student at Yale-NUS College. Majoring in Anthropology, she is the current student representative on the school's Diversity and Inclusion Committee, among other committees, and is known for her work with the G Spot, Yale-NUS' student group for creating a more inclusive campus. Serena actively works towards better mental health provisions on campus and is concerned with the role of educational institutions in creating better support systems for students in higher education. She has also been very vocal about her own struggles with disordered eating and complex trauma, and has been featured on student panels and talks as a voice for the destigmatization of mental illnesses in Singapore and in schools.


Delia Poh - Panelist

Delia is part of the CHAT ambassadors, a group of youths who provide feedback and think up new initiatives to improve CHAT services. Together with her fellow like-minded ambassadors, she actively works towards increasing the awareness and accessibility to mental health services for youths in Singapore. Delia is currently a final year Psychology student at the National University of Singapore, and she hopes that everyone will recognize that mental wellness is important, and not just for people with mental health issues.


Michelle Tan - Panelist

Michelle is a mental health worker who currently helps youths and adults to understand and manage their mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, etc. She previously worked with children and families in social welfare services, and was an addictions counsellor working with drug offenders in Singapore. She believes that persons in recovery are the experts on their own experience, and supports mental health advocacy - such as helping these persons share their stories safely - in hopes of influencing social change.


This project is powered by the National Youth Council's Young Changemakers, and supported by Community Health Assessment Team (CHAT), MeToYou and Touch Cyber Wellness.
