PVP in October

Updated: Mar 13

Our month of October has been productive and fruitful, especially since we’re celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month.


We started off the month by having a free mental health screening, followed by a public training on Mental Health First Aid that happened on October 11-12. The 2-day training was facilitated by PVP’s Project Manager for Mental Health and Well-being, Mr. Jose Mari A. Hulleza RPm, MAPsy, along with Miss Alessandra Apron RPsy, who helped and taught the participants the importance of practicing first aid, especially when it comes to mental health. The training was worthwhile, definitely timely for the month, and indeed a helpful one for us to understand the impact of mental health on our well-being, and to identify what the best way to respond to that issue is.

Another mental health-related webinar has succeeded last October 14. It is a free webinar entitled “On Becoming a Plantito/Plantita: Promoting EcoWellness in the Workplace for a Better Well-Being,” where our resource speakers, PVP’s Workplace Mental Health and Well-being Manager, Mr. Jose Mari A. Hulleza RPm, MAPsy, and the General Manager of Qach Lifestyle & Garden, Ms. Kristine Rosales-Samala, shared their knowledge on how EcoWellness affects our everyday lives. Though it lasted just an hour, the speakers still managed to educate the participants on how great nature can impact, specifically, our work productivity.

PVP also celebrated mental health month with a webinar titled “Quiet Quitting in the Workplace: How is it Related to Employee Mental Health.” The term “quiet quitting” has really boomed and been the talk of many just this year. PVP’s President and Director of Research and Analytics, Dr. Marshall Valencia, as the speaker of the webinar, provided his knowledge and understanding on the said topic. In this webinar, Dr. Valencia has really helped the participants not only by identifying the signs of quiet quitting in the workplace but also by tackling different psychological experiences in relation to quiet quitting, and by offering an action plan and strategies on how we would deal with it.

We all have our own understanding of the generational gaps in the workplace, but Mr. Villamil pointed out the misconceptions of each generation about it and highlighted the probabilities of benefiting from the disadvantages if we would go beyond generational stereotypes.

“Leading is said to be so much more than what is seen on the surface.”


On October 25-26, PVP conducted its Executive Leadership Program and discussed that leadership is not just about working toward a goal, but also about understanding the external factors that come with it. Strong leadership has become one of the beneficial assets in oneself. We can identify it as being available, responsible, and anything else you can see in an executive leader, but Mr. Ross Villamil clarified to us what a true leader actually is.
