Till the Break of Day: A History Of Mental Health Services In Singapore, 1841-1993
This book documents the development of psychiatry in Singapore since its humble beginnings in the British colonial period. It should be of interest to health professionals, medical students, historians interested in the development of medicine and psychiatry and even members of the public with some basic understanding of psychiatry and psychology. Relatives and caregivers of psychiatric patients would also find the information furnished in this book enlightening.
“Dr Ng has written an informative and detailed history of an issue of national importance. Psychiatry is a discipline continually facing stigma, and its history is often ignored on such a basis. Dr Ng’s
history, and his clear advocacy of the advances made in Singapore psychiatry, should inform both general and specialist readers.” – Prof. Gordon Parker, Research Director, Institute of Mental Health,
