Fear. Embarrassment. Pride.
These are the three main reasons many have cited that prevent them from meeting a counsellor or social worker in person to talk about their problems and issues. For them, and many others, AMP offers its Helpline services to lend a listening ear.
The AMP Helpline provides emotional support to a person in distress. It offers non-judgmental listening where you have the freedom to speak about anything that is causing an emotional crisis, without the fear of being judged and with the assurance of confidentiality.
Whatever your concerns may be, give the AMP Helpline a call. We are all ears.
Mondays to Fridays
10.00 am to 5.00 pm
AMP’s trained counsellors and social workers provide counselling and casework as mandated by the Family Justice Courts to families and individuals facing issues of family violence. The main objectives are to prevent and stop the recurrence of violence by respondents. This is done through the learning of more respectful behaviours, as well as enhancing the safety and protection of complainants and vulnerable members of the family by equipping them with knowledge of safety issues and avenues to seek help.
The programme helps clients who are facing issues of family violence, such as victims or perpetrators issued with Personal Protection Order by the Family Justice Court.
Cases are referred to AMP by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF).
