A Healthy State of Mind

28/10/2014

​True to its theme, the Singapore Mental Health Conference from 17 to 18 October gave us valuable insight into the issue of mental health in our society. The AIC Mental Health GP Special Interest Group was also introduced and acknowledged at a special GP symposium that focused on introducing and explaining the network that GPs can tap on in managing mental health patients.


Recognised by many speakers and members of the audience, the community aspect in treating mental health patients was a recurring point throughout the conference. For GPs in particular, mental health treatment is far from a one-man operation, it requires the support from other healthcare providers. And for the patient, the stigma that surrounds mental health is still a salient issue that needs to be addressed. To understand more, we speak with Dr Kwek Thiam Soo to find out first-hand, about his experience in treating the mentally ill and how we can work together to overcome challenges in mental healthcare.
