Centre Director's Message

aprof-john-wong

Welcome to the NUS Mind-Science Centre (NMSC).

There is now a growing urgency for innovative strategies to combat the rising rate of psychological problems and dementia in Singapore and Asia due to a fast-paced lifestyle and an ageing population. In response, the NMSC promotes the use of non-drug, psychosocial interventions to build the mental resilience of the community from adolescents to the elderly.

The NMSC is a knowledge center of excellence for psychological research and provides evidence-based information for planning nation-wide programmes to promote resilience for the general population by enhancing cognitive performance to improve quality of life and work potential.

We hope that you will join us in this important journey to build emotional and mental resilience across the age continuum for a brighter future for everyone.

Best regards,

Dr John Wong Chee Meng
Head, Department of Psychological Medicine
