I started “You can be your best “many years ago. But due to other commitments I had to put it on the back burner.
In 2017 I decided to publish it so that others may benefit from my experience. “You can be your best” opened a fantastic opportunity for me. In 2018 I returned to Singapore – the country of my birth assuming the role of senior manager for the community intervention team- this time for a VWO.
I know there is much I can offer having worked in both the British and Singaporean system. But I’m often frustrated: The literature shows that there is a desperate shortage of mental health workers and existing services are fragmented. .
This shortage can be rectified when decision makers work harder towards a ‘can do’ mindset and start shifting from a popular held paradigm to a radical one.
