Being a CHAT ambassador was like a natural thing for me to do. Starting from CHAT’s assessment service, without which I would never have propelled myself to seek professional help for my depression, to working with CHAT to do an experiential learning exhibition on depression in my university, CHAT has been my support and motivation in my efforts for mental health advocacy. I am like a mini CHAT fan haha. In fact, it is I who feel privileged to have been selected by CHAT to join them in advocating mental health, and to help improve their services.
As a volunteer at CHAT, they treat us like family. They include us in their management meetings, and give us the platform to voice our ideas and opinions. It makes me feel valued and important. And to work alongside like-minded youths makes the experience all the more enjoyable!
