Mental Health Peer Support Training for Employees

From Rank & File to Supervisor A Role Transitioning Training.png

Peer Supporting is an approach wherein practical assistance,  encouragement, and emotional support is given by a "peer" that has similar lived experiences or can establish common ground in order to foster resilience in and facilitate recovery by his peer/s. This workshop aims to establish and enhance social connection within the organization particularly among employees of the same level (peers) by equipping them with skills in active listening and problem-solving in order to adequately provide peer support to one another.
