The Psychosocial Trauma Support Service (PTSS) comprises clinical psychologists who specialise in providing trauma assessment and intervention for children (3 to 18 years old) and women, to support them in coping with the after-effects of traumatic experiences. PTSS also works closely with medical and allied health professionals, schools and community organisations to minimise trauma-related distress and symptoms among children, women and their families.
PTSS believes in enhancing the community’s capability to provide psychosocial support to children, youth and their families after crises or traumatic events. To this end, PTSS developed the Trauma Network for Children (TNC) programme – in collaboration with Temasek Foundation – to generate awareness about trauma and create learning opportunities for our community to gain knowledge and skills for supporting children and youth post-trauma.
