Deborah Seah was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when work stress and a hectic schedule took a toll on her mental health.
Her life came to a standstill and her relationships with family and friends became strained. She felt helpless and did not know what to do or who could help her.
After joining the Peer Support Specialist Programme, which is supported by Community Chest, Deborah has since recovered and now wants to help others.
Today, she gives Mental Health talks at the Institute of Mental Health and other organizations, provides online peer recovery support and facilitates peer support groups. She has become a mental health advocate, sharing her story to give hope to others.
