Mentally Disadvantaged Outreach Programme

Mentally Disadvantaged Outreach Programme

Started in 2001, the Mentally Disadvantaged Outreach Programme (MDOP) is a partnership programme with the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). Our senior volunteers support rehabilitating mental health patients and help ease them back into the society through light physical exercises, puzzle solving and expressive arts. Volunteers also visit IMH wards to befriend the special persons there. In 2014, the programme expanded to partners beyond IMH. We welcome Hougang Care Centre and Bethesda Care Centre FAME Club to our family.
