"Shattered, We HEAL II is a sequel to Shattered, We HEAL  that opened the eyes of many Singaporeans, especially those within the Muslim community here, to the plight of people with mental illness as well as their caregivers. The present work focuses on stories of healing and recovery. It is a compelling narration of lives shattered but also of lives healed that help strengthen the message of hope, empowerment, acceptance and love for all of us who need to HEAL."
 
About Club HEAL (Hope, Empowerment, Acceptance & Love):  It  aims to assist and empower persons with mental illness to regain confidence in themselves and others in their journey towards community reintegration.
