PVP in August

Updated: Mar 13

It was a packed August for PVP!

This month of August, PVP provided its participants with high-quality services in the different aspects of mental health, whether it be in the workplace, general well-being, and training that are necessary in building a healthier mental well-being.


If there is one thing people can’t get enough of, that would be no other than sleep. That’s why PVP is here to help! Last August 10, 2022, we conducted our “Counting Sheep to Sleep: The Role of Sleep in Our Well-being” webinar, where our resource speakers, Miss Alessandra Arpon, a Registered Psychologist, and PVP’s Project Manager for Mental Health and Well-being Jose Mari A. Hulleza, RPm, MAPsy, discussed the importance of sleep on one’s mental wellness and productivity and shared tips on how to create and establish a healthy sleeping pattern to protect them from the adverse effects of sleep deprivation and other unhealthy sleeping patterns. Regardless of the short period of time, the hour-and-a-half interactive webinar has proven to be successful as it was able to reach its goal of educating the participants on different topics regarding sleep, such as the factors that leads to sleep deprivation, the dangers of terrible sleeping habits, debunking myths of sleeping habits, and sharing ideas to establish a healthy sleeping routine.

One of the many complex aspects that might affect our mental health is whether or not we make financially responsible decisions. A person's financial distress can set off a chain reaction of worry and anxiety. Hence, PVP held an online learning session entitled “Money and Mental Health: Why Financial Literacy Matters.” This was facilitated by Dr. Marshall Valencia, a social and organizational psychologist and the Director for Research and Analytics of PVP, and Mr. Mightor Hernandez, PVP’s Director for Finance and Business Development. They discussed the significance of having a thorough understanding of financial literacy and the impact one's financial situation has on their mental health. They also went on to discuss practical ways how they may improve their financial management to lower their risk of developing mental health conditions. The speakers further tackled the dimensions of wellness and money's psychological side. The one-and-a-half-hour virtual session was informative and beneficial enough to our participants as it guided them in exploring ways to build resilience through financial literacy and practical tips on living financially wise while keeping their mental well-being healthy.



A positive psychological workplace is necessary to build a psychologically healthy workforce. At PVP, we desire to help employees lessen or prevent mental health issues caused by the remote and hybrid workforce that is currently being employed in different workplaces. Thus, a workshop entitled “Planning and Creating Mental Health Activities for Remote and Hybrid Workforce Webinar/Workshop” led by Miss Alessandra Arpon, RPsy, was held on August 24 and 25, 2022. The first day of the workshop gave Miss Apron the opportunity to lead an insightful discussion on numerous issues and topics relating to the remote and hybrid workforce, such as the different changes in the post-pandemic workplace, its impact on employees’ mental health, and workplace mental health. Attendees were also able to share their experiences with stressors that affect their mental well-being due to diverse workplace setups, and how they manage this stress using breakout sessions via Zoom, and Menti meter.

On the last day of the workshop which Miss Arpon has once again presided over, she introduced the importance of having a positive psychological workplace to our workshop participants. She used the Intervention Pyramid to show attendees what a mentally healthy workplace should look like and asked them to assess whether they were practicing the 6 Workplace Mental Health and Well-being Best Practices. Miss Arpon also introduced the PERMA+4 framework through an interactive activity that allowed participants to observe their positive emotions, engagement, relationship, meaning, and accomplishment in work, all of which are important for thriving in life.

We at PVP are optimistic that our participants have learned so much on how to further improve quality of life, specifically in hybrid and remote workplaces, through the different activities and approaches that we have introduced.
