She also leans on family, friends and mentors at HappYouth, a mental wellness project by the Character & Leadership Academy, a youth development charity.
She says: "Thinking about my mother and reading motivational quotes have also helped. My suicidal thoughts rarely come back now."
Some youth like Ashley, who have mental health struggles, are displaying signs of resilience despite the challenges posed by Covid-19.
This comes as mental health helplines have been ringing more as a result of the pandemic.
As the stresses from the coronavirus pandemic kick in, teenagers and young adults are more open to seeking help with their mental health, experts say.
Between July and last month, HappYouth received an average of nine calls each month relating to youth looking for emotional support.
This is up from an average of three such cases a month for the same period last year.
Touch Community Services received 142 calls to its helpline between March and June, a spike of nearly 70 per cent compared with the same period last year.
About 80 per cent of these calls relating to mental health were from youth aged 13 to 21.
Ms Andrea Chan, head of Mental Wellness and Intervention at Touch Integrated Family Group, says: "Covid-19 has increased the public's awareness of mental health-related issues and more youth are willing to seek help.
"The significant increase in such calls that we've seen also emphasises how the risks, uncertainty and disruption of lifestyles during Covid-19 can trigger symptoms of anxiety and depression."
Being in a phase in life that places a high value on friendship, peer approval and autonomy can add pressure on adolescents during the pandemic.
Ms Chan says: "Not being able to meet friends and go out to destress can lead to youth feeling helpless and disappointed.
"In addition, youth are at a life stage where they feel a stronger need for autonomy. Being home with their parents for an extended period of time may result in more clashes and disagreements at home."
Mr Martin Chok, assistant director of youth services at Care Corner Singapore, a non-profit organisation, adds that unremitting headlines about Covid-19 infections and fatalities have led some young people to reflect on "life and loss in a heightened way".
For Mr Syed Syahir Syed Idris, 23, the pandemic has resurfaced anxieties and insecurities from a 2017 serious road accident he was involved in.
A car crashed into the motorcycle he was riding and his left leg was broken in three places.
He spent almost a year in hospital, undergoing more than 20 operations.
The accident dealt a blow to his dreams of becoming a physical education teacher.
Mr Syed, who has finished his polytechnic education and is waiting to enter national service, can no longer play his favourite sports like football and silat, though he has regained his mobility.
He says: "With Covid-19, most of the time, I was in my room alone with negative thoughts about feeling useless.
"I remembered the time when I was in hospital and I couldn't do anything, needing help with daily tasks."
He kept such thoughts at bay by watching stand-up comedy on YouTube and staying connected to people close to him, such as his girlfriend of five years, who also supported him through his accident.
Healing a broken body and navigating a pandemic have some things in common, he has learnt.
"I will not think of anything negative and will push ahead."
Care Corner's Mr Chok has not only witnessed teenagers catching Covid-19 curve balls like having to adjust quickly to nationwide home-based learning.
He has also seen other teens taking on temporary jobs to help their parents who have lost their income during the pandemic.
One teen he knows dropped out of school recently because of an anxiety disorder diagnosed two years ago.
He is now determined to take up night classes in the future.
Many youth are very resilient, says Mr Chok.
"They can adapt to changes, sometimes even better than adults."
