The project is targeted toward the general public, especially people dealing with specific mental issues such as depression and anxiety. It was started in 2018. Participants reach out to Silent Scream via our various channels, including the website and social media pages.
They are connected to mental health counsellors who speak to them at no cost. These counsellors are volunteer members of Silent Scream Foundation. People who need additional professional help are referred to mental health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists. These allocations are based on the specificity of the help needed by the participants.
The project is ongoing so complete results have yet to be collated.
However, over the past few years, Silent Scream has had over 80 people reaching out to us. They have either been connected to a volunteer counsellor or a professional mental health professional.
