Fees: S$280.00 (GST will not be applicable)

Learn how to be a First Responder in Psychological Aid for employees as well as master self-care techniques such as Sleep and Stress Management.

Supervisors and Managers work closely with staff and are therefore familiar with not only the job duties, responsibilities, and challenges employees experience but also the work style and character of employees. Hence, Supervisors and Managers are therefore ideal First Responders to recognize mental health distress on those working for them.

Other than uncertainties brought about by a highly volatile business climate, Covid-19 has amplified unprecedented work and lifestyle concerns such as job and financial security, personal health, continued social distancing. Psychological health and wellness are not only increasingly important but the role of Supervisors and Managers in supporting staff in this area is more pressing and prominent.
