Bizlink Cafe 

Bizlink Cafe 

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.

Woodbridge Hospital Heritage Corner

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 was closed in 1993 with the opening of the new IMH/Woodbridge Hospital. A selection of doors and windows used in the old hospital have been preserved here as reminders of its heritage.

Sunrise Wing

This is a children’s ward that serves both children and adolescents between 6 and 19 years of age. Most have emotional and behavioural problems that need professional help.

*Above tour stops are subject to change without prior notice. We apologise that we are unable to host visits from individuals, due to resource constraints. Visitors should arrange to visit as a group. 


Sharing by Caregivers and Recovering Patients

Coping with and conquering mental health illness is not easy, but many of our patients have successfully done so, thanks to their determination to recover and to strong support from their family. Caregivers can face immense challenges when caring for loved ones suffering from mental illness. Many of these patients and caregivers have become advocates of mental health and openly share their stories with the intention of destigmatising mental illness and inspiring others. 

For more information, please contact the Corporate Communications Department.

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 with the patients.
