The Almighty Sometimes : Honest Conversation about young people's mental health challenge

 Know anyone facing a mental health challenge?

Based on a recent article in Straits Times," About one in three youth in Singapore has reported internalising mental health symptoms such as sadness, anxiety, and loneliness, a national study has found. Those aged 14 to 16 had more serious symptoms." 

If you are a parent and a teen in your family facing the same challenge, you are not alone. While everyone's journey is different, understanding what the child is going through would not be an easy task for a parent. Sometimes, as a parent, we might even choose to ignore and, on the other extreme, push for decisions such as medication to 'solve' the issue. Before you decide on your course of action for the child, perhaps SRT The Almighty Sometimes can enlighten the way.

The Almighty Sometimes is a heartfelt family drama about love, life and letting go, no matter the consequences.  Based on Kendall Feaver's multi-award-winning play The Almighty Sometimes is a profound and compelling study of a young woman trying to discover where her illness ends and her identity begins, and the effects years of medication can have on the brain.


Anna has been on medication for so long she can't remember who she is without it. All she knows is that once, as a little girl, she was a prodigious writing talent, in possession of a thrilling imagination.

Now twenty-one, Anna wants to rediscover the talent and passions she believes were interrupted. She wants to know what life would be like without pills and prescriptions, but as Anna tries to find out who she really is, her mother, remains determined to protect her – but Anna’s treatment is no longer her decision.

The play is a heartfelt family drama about loving someone with a mental illness, An intelligent and honest take on the difficult choices parents make in a child's best interests, and what happens why you no longer have a say.

Based on the writeup, this play would provide a good opportunity for parents and child to explore the options presented to them and the consequences of their actions . This is one play we would recommend to families who are currently facing this crossroads of their mental health journey.
