According to the Singapore Mental Health Study 2010, more than one in 10 people will have a mental health condition in their lifetime.

It also found there was a general unwillingness to talk openly about mental health issues because respondents would not want anyone to know if they are suffering from a mental illness.

The study also found that people with mental health issues believe that they are stigmatised by society, feel they have a lower quality of life if they had no income, felt excluded from society and did not feel that they could fulfill their potential.
