A man threatens his family with a dagger and refuses to let them leave their house in Clementi. #Singapore

This is called a mental breakdown and one is faced with problems. Firstly due to his past offences he has difficulty getting a job. He should have gone to SCORE for help in getting a job. SCORE helps ex-offenders with a job and SANA gives counselling to ex-offenders as that's what the Yellow Project is about. He will start out with a small salary but with hardwork he can get the market rate which is good for a sad. That will boost his self-confidence and he will feel good about himself to be gainfully employed. To those out there who are facing similars problems please go to Score or Sana house for help. If there is a will there is a way. You have to make the first move to rehabiliate if not you will relapse very fast. I feel sad for the family. I hope this man will get the much needed help that he needs as he is a lost soul.
