Road to Full Recovery: A Psychosocial Support Session for COVID19 Survivors

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected our lives. We might have been affected by it first hand and successfully recovered from it, but as we go on with our lives, you might be feeling odd -- you might feel that something is not right with yourself, something is not the way it's used to be.


Mental Health Peer Support Training for Employees
(Online Training)

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. This training also aims to illustrate positive behavior which the peer supporter can model when giving support to their colleagues who face difficult challenges in their lives whether personal or work-related.
