Counselling and Student Welfare Support

Mental Wellness in Serangoon Secondary School is about providing our students with a safe space to share their challenges and work through their social, emotional, behavioural and mental health issues. We strive to empower our students towards positive help-seeking behaviours to improve their mental well-being. 


Positive help-seeking behaviours demonstrate the courage and strength to seek ways to understand oneself better, to get support for help to make things better and take a step towards improving our well-being and happiness.

Our Counselling and Student Welfare (CSW) Team is here to support you in your journey of self-discovery!

If you would like to find out more about how you could be supported, you may contact us via this link.
