With mounting international awareness of the impact of mental disorder on public health, clinical psychology is a growing field in Singapore. Currently, there is a widespread demand for clinical psychology services.
The Ministry of Health - National Mental Health Blueprint - has prioritised the development of mental health manpower as a key focus area for Singapore for 2007 to 2011.
