Stay tuned for our next talk! How about watching our past talks on mental health in the meantime?
On the surface, Lishan looks the picture of health; however, she struggles with multiple mental illnesses. She has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, bulimia nervosa, borderline personality disorder, complex post traumatic stress disorder, premenstrual dysphoric disorder and insomnia. Having been through intense treatment including multiple medications, having seen five psychiatrists, regular psychotherapy with three counsellors and transcranial magnetic stimulation in the past two years, she most recently had eight electro convulsive therapies during a three week hospital stay.
A vocal advocate for psychological wellness in Singapore, Lishan hopes that by sharing her story openly, that misconceptions and stigma may be broken.
