What is SOLS Health?

SOLS Health is a social enterprise that provides affordable and professionally licensed mental health services for all. We provide therapy, assessments and counselling to individuals, children, families, and couples. SOLS Health promotes and inspires individual and community health and well-being through a range of psychological and related educational services and events.

This is consistent with our efforts to decrease the ignorance, prejudice and discrimination surrounding mental health. By providing easily understood resources and skills through  our services and events, we educate people on such issues in hopes of getting rid of the fears that stop people from confronting this real yet highly misunderstood issue of mental health.

In line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Developmental Goal #3: Good Health & Well-being, SOLS Health believes that a sufficient mental health care and support system is important for the betterment of our society, and that accessible mental health is a cause worth fighting for.

Our fight

At SOLS Health, our fight is to make mental health services easier to access by breaking the walls of stigma (i.e: ignorance, prejudice & discrimination) and affordability.

Mission

“breaking barriers, changing lives”

At any point of our lives, we experience barriers that stop us reaching certain goals and prevent us from reaching our perceived potential. At SOLS Health, we intend to tear down the brick wall surrounding mental health services, to bring change to how we view psychological issues, and show how easy it is to get help.

Our History

SOLS Health began as the SHIELD Program in October 2014 when there was a need for counseling service for the staff and students at SOLS 24/7. After SHIELD stood as an organisation, we started seeing clients on a full time basis. Over time, our services were opened to the public, with a good response coming from people that lived in the surrounding areas.

For many of you that knew us as the SHIELD program, you would know that we were an NGO that provided affordable and accessible mental health services such as therapy, assessments, workshops, talks in different kinds of communities. SOLS Health will still be that and so much more!

Navigaide 

Navigaide was previously known as SHIELD Program. With our team of professionals trained in different areas of mental health, Navigaide provides therapy, assessments and school integration services to our clients, as well as talks and programs to the community.

Navigaide connects you to the right professionals that specialise in:

Assessments:

A clinical assessment includes the in-depth interview, behavioural observation, intellectual and personality testing amongst others.

Similar to a health check at the clinic, the doctor uses many different tests to understand how healthy you are to guide him/her in planning a treatment plan for you. Psychological assessments have the same function. We provide this service to both adults and children over a wide range of different issues.

Working with underserved communities

In order to educate as many people as possible, we further extend our subsidised services and  programs to the underprivileged communities like Orang Asli and refugees. In order to do so, we utilise funds given by different companies as part of the policies set by the government to get corporations to get involved in charitable efforts.

In the case of clients who are unemployed or belong to the B40 segment, we offer a sliding fee structure that is based upon evidence of the client’s income and is available upon request.

Coming Soon

Activaide

Our group program initiative is currently under development. We are striving to create meaningful and powerful programs that address issues like self achievement, stress management, parenting, career, and weight management. We look forward to opening it up to the public soon!

Creaide

We are under intensive renovation to transform our current venue into a charming, cosy and safe space for the public to visit. We envision a place that will not only provide people with a place to relax, but also a space for inspiring and unique talks that serve to create a more educated, aware and open community!
