The Child Guidance Clinic was set up in 1970 to treat children with emotional and behavioural problems. Today it is based at the new Health Promotion Board Building and is run by the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Institute of Mental Health.

The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (DCAP) provides psychological and psychiatric services for children and adolescents up to 19 years of age. The vast majority of children and adolescents seen by the department do not suffer from mental illness. Most have emotional and behavioral problems that need professional help.

We see over 2000 new cases every year and over 14000 follow-ups. The multidisciplinary team include, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists and nurse specialists. Our staff also provide consultations to all public hospitals in Singapore.

CGC is part of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Institute of Mental Health. IMH is a member of the National Healthcare Group.
