In June, a woman wearing a skincare face mask was captured on a livestream kicking a couple’s food.

The Jun 28 incident, originally streamed live on the Twitch platform, spread like wildfire on social media. One TikTok recut of the livestream garnered more than 1.5 million views. That was just one recut. There were multiple other videos; some TikTok users went so far as to add their own commentary and insulting words in their videos.

The online comments appeared as fiercely as the videos spread: Some netizens showed support for the livestreamer, calling the masked woman names like "siao" (crazy); others called for empathy given her state of mind.

Yet no one thought to consider the struggles of the woman’s family. After the incident went viral, the woman’s sister, who is her primary caregiver, contacted CNA. The sister revealed that the 41-year-old woman is being treated for schizophrenia and spoke about the struggles caregivers face in caring for someone with a mental health condition.

It is estimated that there are more than 430,000 adults in Singapore with common mental health disorders, according to a release in October 2021 by the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

Additionally, one in 116 people aged 18 years and above of the resident population in Singapore have been diagnosed with schizophrenia at some point in their lives, according to a separate IMH release in May 2021.

This translates to about 34,000 persons living with this mental disorder like the woman, which also means there are at least 34,000 caregivers like the woman’s sister.
