About our Charity
Over the Rainbow

This year, the George Washington Ball is supporting Over-the-Rainbow (OTR), a charity that works to improve youth mental health wellness. OTR's mission is to transform mental wellness for the 21st century. They envision a world where mental illness is no longer stigmatized; where mental wellness is a life priority; and where every young person has the opportunity to realize their full potential through the journey of self-discovery, healing and transformation via holistic self-care and a supportive community.

A family tragedy in 2009 became the catalyst for the initiative that is Over-The-Rainbow. Chinese Americans Yen-Lu and Yee Ling Chow lost their son and only child Lawrance H. Chow to suicide on October 22, 2009. Lawrence was only 26, but had suffered from manic-depression for many years. Over-the-Rainbow is the story of how these grieving parents turned their loss into championing an important cause.

Since launching in October 2012, OTR has been a pioneer and trailblazer in the space of youth mental wellness - innovating and pushing the mental health envelope with countless programs and initiatives. Today, OTR provides affordable professional therapy for youth age 11-20. Parents of troubled youth can also find support. There is also a peer-to-peer self-help support group, a real-time text-based chat support service provisioned by trained volunteers, community outreach initiatives and a bi-annual magazine.

Perhaps most importantly, Over-the-Rainbow via their flagship the Wellbeing Champion program works to empower more and more young people (and families) to achieve wellbeing through practices rooted in good self-care habits that is holistic and transformative. These initiatives and activities collectively has touched nearly a million lives through both online and offline touch-points, and transformed many others. 

Initiatives provided by Over-the-Rainbow have become more important than ever. Death by suicide is the leading cause of death for 10–29-year-olds in Singapore and suicides rates are at an all-time high, steadily increasing year after year. In fact, 2022 saw the highest number of suicides in Singapore since 2000.


While Covid-19 put the spotlight on mental health and raised awareness on its importance, the stigma associated with mental illness has unfortunately persisted. Over-the-Rainbow aims to change the narrative around this and to help those struggling with mental health so that no parent has to go through what Yen-Lu and Yee Ling had to go through – losing a child to mental illness.

What started from the ashes of a heart-shattering family tragedy has transformed into a thriving organization with a mission that turned into a movement to transform mental wellness for the 21st century.
