EQUAL Therapy is tailored to targeted groups from voluntary children’s homes like Ahuva Good Shepherd and Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre, organizations like Singapore Association for Mental Health, and schools like Crest Secondary School and Grace Orchard School. Targeted delivery is overseen by our Clinical Director to ensure specialized needs are met. Since starting in 2011, we are working with over 12 organizations and 1000 beneficiaries, growing from 80 to 400 beneficiaries per year.
Our beneficiaries experience:
The program has been adapted to deliver character and citizenship education (CCE) to NorthLight School and Spectra Secondary School. Interpersonal themes like empathy and teamwork and matched to intrapersonal themes like impulse management and persistence, across 5 social-emotional learning (SEL) competencies. This culminates in a milestone community project, where beneficiaries demonstrate “values in action”.
In 2014, EQUAL Therapy received the FEI Solidarity award from Her Royal Highness, Princess Haya bint Hussein.
