Special Subsidy Fund :)
Hernping here. I'm the founder of iash.sg and we started this special subsidy fund in May 2023 to help support youths in special circumstances. Especially ones who need professional therapy, but don't have the means to afford it.
These subsidies go beyond our already subsidised rates and we use funds that are lovingly crowdsourced by you to help pay for these youth's healing journeys with our Resident Counsellors.
We could really use your help if you're willing :) read the stories of 5 current beneficiaries below and the different ways you can support this fund!
Currently 18 years old and comes from an emotional and physically abusive home. Parents don't support and are unaware of her help-seeking efforts, so this youth has been saving up her allowance to pay for Therapy.
Youth experiences depression, anxiety, ADHD and is on the spectrum, and deals with chronic physical illness too. Currently seeing a Resident Counsellor with this special subsidy :)
Youth is a victim of sexual assault during secondary school and has suffered significant trauma from the incidents (multiple).
Youth currently experiences flashbacks, panic attacks and has been a long-time sufferer from Depression. Has high tendency to self-harm and multiple suicide attempts. We gave her a special subsidy that would enable her to go for weekly therapy.
Youth was sexually assaulted by family since an early age. Was dismissed by parents about these incidents. Started self-harming in primary school.
Youth faced more sexual assault as well as parental trauma in secondary school. Tried to attempt suicide multiple times and actively engages in self-harm.
We reached this youth through our discord server and offered her free therapy - through which she attends every fortnight now.
Youth is a long time sufferer of depression and anxiety. This stems from a lot of trauma due to parents, who are not open and willing to let the youth seek help.
Youth currently studies and works two jobs to be able to pay for therapy. We subsidised their counselling so she would have less financial burden on themselves.
Youth has been diagnosed with depression and eating disorders since the age of 15. Youth struggles with home environment as well as having family members with special needs.
Youth is currently working four jobs while attending university, while dealing with suicidal thoughts and ideation.
We subsidised her therapy so she can receive weekly help.
