Support for community members suffering due to conflicts overseas

As we see the ongoing overseas conflicts, we recognise the profound impact these conflicts may have on people’s mental health and well-being. In times of crisis, it is crucial for our community members to come together, show compassion, and support one another. With this in mind, we want to highlight the importance of seeking help when needed.


SNHN understand members of our staff and the broader community may be experiencing heightened stress, anxiety, or other mental health challenges because of the current conflicts. Many mental health services are available to help people during these difficult times. We list such services below:
