Dr Munidasa Winslow has worked in general psychiatry and addiction medicine at IMH since 1988. He was one of the pioneers responsible for the setting up and development of addiction services both in the hospital and in the community. His last appointment was as chief of the Addiction Medicine Department, IMH. In 2004, he helped set up the WE CARE Community Services with a group of like-minded therapists. This was to help develop community and self-help services to enhance recovery from addictions.
He has been a pioneer in addiction and impulse control disorders (alcohol, substance dependence, gambling, gaming, sexual compulsivity etc) in the Asia-Pacific region. He is a sought after speaker at addiction conferences around the region. Despite being a fully qualified psychiatrist, he has taken the time and effort to maintain and develop his therapy/counselling skills as seen by his being accredited as a certified master addiction counsellor and a certified clinical supervisor.
He has published and presented widely on both general psychological and addiction issues. He continues his academic and research interests through his academic appointments with NUHS and teaching in many counselling courses. His passion is to help therapists develop and hone their skills to effect real change in those they seek to help.
Dr Winslow is also the founder and executive director of Promises Pte Ltd, which is a mental health & addictions consulting and training company established to help healthcare professionals and individuals in Singapore.
