The government recognises that Singaporeans livelihood is not the only aspect that is affected by COVID-19 pandemic, so besides financial support, emotional and mental health support are also provided during this period.
Community mental health support services will continue to provide care and support for clients through phone consultations.
A 24/7 National Care Hotline will be set up by the Ministry of Social and Family Development.
