Established in 2000, the Woodbridge Hospital Charity Fund (WHCF) is an Institute of a Public Character (IPC) and a registered charity (UEN: 201940371M) under the purview of the Ministry of Health.

Why Support WHCF

Mental illness is perhaps the least understood and most stigmatised of all medical conditions.

Today, IMH takes care of about 52,000 outpatients each year and attends to 1,800 inpatients on average every day. About 1,000 of its inpatients are long-stay patients living with chronic mental illness. For this group, visits from families are few and far between, if at all. Our nurses and volunteers have become their surrogate family. Together with staff, the IMH volunteers regularly run activities and organise outings and celebrations to keep them meaningfully engaged.

Due to mental health stigma and individual circumstances (e.g. social issues, subpar functioning and medical issues), being gainfully employed remains a challenge for many outpatients. Some require vocational support and others rely on financial support for basic needs like food, public transport, and basic amenities. Staff at IMH identify such patients and support them through various programmes.

Funding of these programmes continue to relies on philanthropic support/donations as this allows the hospital to go beyond medical treatments to better serve patients faced with other issues such as unemployment, stigma from friends and family and advancing treatments with clinical intervention pilots, research & development.

Your donations will go a long way towards supporting these efforts.
