Description

Loneliness can hit any one of us at any time. Sometimes it may due to some major changes in life, sometimes we may have no reason to feel this way. Sometimes loneliness can be a symptom of something else going on in our lives thus it is good to know how these are related to well-being.

Learn how we can overcome loneliness that can lead to depression from Dr Seow.


Speaker: Dr Seow Su Yin, Psychiatrist, Sengkang General Hospital

Dr Seow is an accredited Psychiatrist practising at Sengkang General Hospital. She has a strong clinical interest in Old Age Psychiatry, especially in managing depression, anxiety and dementia.

She has worked in various settings such as inpatient, outpatient and outreach to community in different hospitals in Singapore.

Dr Seow fulfilled her years of residency in National Psychiatry Residency program and earned her postgraduate qualification as a trained psychiatrist. She is also a member of Royal College of Psychiatrist (UK).
