No man is an island. We are all created and wired for social connections as human beings. This is why relationships affect our mental health and emotional well-being so much. Yet perhaps many of us don’t seem to do very well in the area of relationships.
Hurt people hurt people. If we have not healed from past hurts in relationships, it may sometimes affect our ability to trust people and build meaningful relationships. Another factor that may affect our ability to build good relationships is our attachment styles and that is being developed in our childhood.
This is one topic I'm passionate about so I really hope you will enjoy this series, and I hope our content will help you understand your attachment styles better, so you can grow in how you relate with others and enjoy your relationships even more! -Pamela Koh (Founder & Clinical Director of ThriveSg)

It has been almost more than 2 years since we have been in a pandemic. Perhaps for many of us it has been challenging to adjust to a new normal, and to grieve the losses we experienced because of pandemic.
As we continue to persevere through this, how do we build our emotional resilience? How do we care for our mental health?
Hi everyone, really thankful for each of you that has joined our IG Tribe. Fighting the stigma around mental health is a mission that is close to ThriveSg's heart.
Coach Kubo and I go all the way back to my time in Japan when he was my coach who guided me in working with students. Many of you may not know, but I actually have 16 years of experience working with young people, and for 6 years I worked among Japanese university students journeying with them, mentoring, and coaching them in Nagoya.
Coach Kubo now leads the international students work at Power to Change in Australia. He recently did a mental health interview with me for the students he works with in Sydney.
In this short 5 min snippet of the interview, I shared my concern about the stigma around mental health especially in Asian culture. Perhaps many of you might resonate with this! I also share how ThriveSg is doing her part to try and overcome this stigma.
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.
ThriveSg champions a help-seeking culture through advocating a growth perspective towards counselling, to overcome the stigma of mental illnesses and emotional challenges.
