Our Services

1. Training Programmes

Our training programmes are structured to equip youths with skills to support and empower others within the community. Our programmes are backed by rigorous research and have also been validated by practitioners in the mental health care industry.


2. Letter writing platform

The platform serves as a safe space for youths to confide about their problems anonymously to a trained befriender. We seek to provide emotional support to youths who may be facing difficulties in life and encourage meaningful conversations.

Our founder

Matt Oon
Chief Executive Officer

I have been a caregiver to my mother who has schizophrenia since I was 7. These responsibilities throughout the years seeded my interest for mental health issues. In the very beginning, being her caregiver inspired me to volunteer to contribute to initiatives supporting the mental well-being of youth between the years 2013 and 2016. In the process of volunteering, I found my passion for innovation and driving social change. I founded Acceset to develop technological infrastructure that can facilitate peer support and measure how the support is improving youth well-being.


Despite the humble beginnings of this project, in 2018, I was awarded the Queen's Young Leader's Award for the company's contribution thus far. We are still in our infancy compared to fellow nominee's established works and I was concerned whether I deserved the award. I remember questioning the basis on which it was awarded to me, especially when I hadn't achieved the results or numbers to evidence its success. Nevertheless, I remember being told,

"We believe in your potential, and the potential of your work."

This has uplifted my confidence and is what guides the culture and hiring practices of the company.
