If it would help your child to read about others' experience overcoming problems and challenges in life, feel free to check out https://www.facebook.com/UnbrokenSG
and
http://unbroken2012.wordpress.com/

Unbroken is a campaign which aims to encourage youths to seek help, and to encourage youths to support each other. There will be real life sharings on the site which would inspire youths to keep pressing on with life's challenges, and most importantly to let them know they are not alone :)

The youths who do write in to us will be referred to professional organisations such as CHAT, SOS and Silver Ribbon if they are assessed to be of need of professional help.
