When his mentee, a 23-year-old undergraduate, tragically took his own life amid depression in early 2010, it caused Chua Seng Lee to despair and cry, “Why? What could have prevented this needless death?” Little did Seng Lee realise that mental illness, with the stigma surrounding it, is prevalent and a rising issue in Singapore.
