Who is ThriveSg for?


ThriveSg serves young people (17-25) from all walks of life and of different faiths. We believe that everyone has the capacity to thrive significantly when empowered and supported through growing in self-discovery, emotional wellness and resilience, and mental health.

We journey with those struggling with issues, not limited to but including:

  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Addictions
  • Burnout
  • Depression
  • Codependency, Emotional dependency
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Perfectionism
  • Grief and losses
  • Relationship issues
  • Childhood traumas, Complex traumas
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Life transition issues
  • Be a Thriver


    Our tribe is proudly known as “Thrivers”. A thriver is proactive and courageous in seeking support and self-development in order to grow and power through life’s difficult periods and live a meaningful life.


    We champion a support-seeking culture. We aim to reach out and connect with young persons who are going through mental and emotional challenges, and help them heal and overcome the stigma of mental illness and other forms of trauma.


    Empowered by advocacy


    Every young person deserves to live their life to the fullest potential— happiness, personal goals, passion and purpose. But life doesn’t always have an easy trail. As vulnerable individuals, we grow up with unresolved issues that can hinder our ability to thrive, and which could be carried through adulthood.


    ThriveSg wants you to know that there is no shame in seeking the support you need. We invite all young persons aged 17 to 25 years old to discover our joyful tribe and experience a journey to learning, healing and empowerment through our transformational activities:

    Obedience and our Mental Health

    As Christians, the topic of mental health is made more complex because of our susceptibility to form biases and assumptions; for instance, that those struggling are “living in defeat” and not walking close with God, or that they can easily recover from their struggles if they “just believe”. The change begins in us...
