PSYCHIATRIC

SHELTERED HOME

In 2017, the work of Singapore Anglican Community Services (SACS) Psychiatric Services received affirmation from the Ministry of Health which appointed SACS to operate the Anglican Care Centre (Farrer Park), a sheltered home for persons with mental health issues (PMHI) who have undergone psychiatric rehabilitation and are ready to reintegrate into the community.

 

The centre is an integral part of SACS continuum of care for PMHI who need temporary accommodation and can live independently with some form of gainful employment. It has a capacity to serve 60 adults and 20 youths. Counselling and case management support are offered to strengthen clients’ independence so that they can better reintegrate into the community.
