Yohanna Abdullah

Getting help for mental health conditions can be difficult, but no one should have to struggle through it alone. 

Yohanna is a client of Club HEAL, an organisation that assists and empowers people with mental health conditions.

Yohanna developed Bipolar Disorder when she faced marital and financial challenges. She experienced manic episodes and was hospitalised multiple times at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

There was light at the end of the tunnel when she discovered Club HEAL, an organisation supported by Community Chest that assists and empowers people with mental health conditions. In the warm and supportive environment, she found renewed hope and strength to recover.
 
As a Rehab Executive and Content Specialist, Yohanna now inspires others like her to express their thoughts and emotions through the arts. She has written five books on mental health and contributes to the HEAL Newsletter. Having travelled the rocky road, she believes that “life is a rollercoaster, you just have to ride it”.
