SINGAPORE: A new mobile team will be set up in July to help those who may be affected by mental conditions.

The Mobile Mental Health Outreach Team will take calls from members of the community and send case workers to follow up.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean at a Singapore Association for Mental Health's (SAMH) charity dinner on Friday evening.

SAMH aims to promote mental wellness and empower people with mental illnesses to rebuild their lives.

The association is hoping to raise S$500,000 for its cause.   - CNA/jc
