​​We offer a programme that brings you on a learning journey where you will be introduced to our hospital’s healthcare services, gain a better understanding on the mental healthcare landscape in Singapore, and the issues and challenges (stigma and myths) faced by persons with mental health conditions.

We seek your understanding that we are unable to host visits from individuals. Visitors should represent an organisation and arrange to visit as a group. As we have limited slots, please send in your visit request at least one month before the date of the visit.

(With the ongoing pandemic, all physical visits are replaced with virtual learning journeys until further notice.)

Specialist Clinic B provides outpatient psychiatry services to subsidised patients. 


BizLink Café, a self-service food and beverage (F & B) kiosk located in the IMH Main Lobby, was launched in January 2013. A collaboration between BizLink Centre Singapore Limited and IMH’s Occupational Therapy Department, the Café and its backend kitchen serve as platforms for patients recovering from mental illness to undergo vocational training. Patients can choose to be trained either as service crew or as kitchen assistants, and receive valuable F & B skills training aimed at preparing them for open employment in this industry.


  

Take a walk down memory lane when you visit the Woodbridge Muse​um. Learn about the history of the old Woodbridge Hospital and view artefacts, documents and photographs from the past – with some contributed by our staff who were with IMH since the Woodbridge period.

The museum is open to the public and walk-ins are welcome.

Museum opening hours: 9am to 5pm​


Displayed in this courtyard are relics of the old Woodbridge Hospital, then named the ‘Mental Hospital’. It was built in 1928 as an asylum with 24 wards to provide custodial care for the mentally ill. The old Woodbridge Hospital at Yio Chu Kang Road was closed in 1993 with the opening of the new IMH/Woodbridge Hospital at Buangkok Green Medical Park. A selection of doors and windows used in the old hospital have been preserved here as reminders of its heritage.


Seeking help and living with a mental health illness is not easy, but many individuals have coped well, thanks to their belief in recovery and support from their family and friends. Many of them have become advocates of mental health and share their stories with the intention of destigmatising mental illness and inspiring others.


If your organisation would like to make a difference in the lives of our patients, you could either make a donation to our Woodbridge Hospital Charity Fund or share some of your precious time by volunteering (PDF, 2860 KB) with the patients.​​​
