​​​​​REACH (Response, Early intervention and Assessment in Community mental Health) is a community-based mental healthcare service for students with emotional, social and/or behavioural issues. This national programme is jointly run by the Institute of Mental Health, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and National University Hospital, working and works collaboratively with the Ministry of Education (MOE) to bring mental healthcare services into the community by working closely with schools and Social Service Agencies (SSAs).​

Since its set up in 2007, REACH has expanded its services to implement mental health services to all MOE-registered schools in Singapore to increase accessibility to mental health support for students below 19 years of age.
