1. HELPING INDIVIDUALS & ORGANIZATIONS THRIVE

Mental Well-Being Programme

Burnout is no respecter of age, social-economic status, gender etc. Left unmanaged, it might lead to mental health challenges and greatly affect individuals and their loved ones. The Singapore Mental Health Study 2016 found that 1 in 7 people in Singapore experienced mental health challenges.

Emmaus acts as a multiplier to help individuals build personal resilience and wellness by preventing and overcoming burnout through:

(a) “From Stress to Zest” Talk (Complimentary Talk) *

This carefully designed talk helps participants to explore questions including:

      • What is stress? Is the same as burnout?
      • Do I or my loved one have burnout?
      • How does one begin to take steps to prevent or overcome burnout?
      • Companies may also participate in the “Grow It Forward” programme and bring this talk to another non-profit to help them prevent burnout. * One complimentary talk per organization for a minimum of 15 persons, and a maximum of 40 persons. A limited number of complimentary talks slots will be made available each month, subjected to Emmaus Strategies’ selection and availability.

Very interesting... I learn a lot in your session

I have a wonderful experience working this Volunteer Management Project with Emmaus Team. Before we begin the work, my heart was heavy as I felt and think it's going to be tough as I don't even know where to start from. Emmaus has made the whole process so simple and showed us a Process Map on how are we going to take the first step to begin the journey and how's going to end the journey. I'm very thankful for their experience and professional expertise in the area that guided us through the project smoothly. I'm so happy to see the end result and what we have created together. It was a success and I'm truly enjoyed the training provided by Emmaus Team to complete the whole project with our organization. Thank you Emmaus Team and wishing you all the best - continue to fuel good to many organization that need your service.

Modelled after the Poverty Challenge, the simulation is a specially designed experiential activity to help those going through the activity to better understand families in need and the various challenges they may face. It aims to help participants:

  • gain awareness and appreciation of the various social and family issues that families in need may face,
  • recognise how every individual and family have varying levels of resources, and
  • understand the impact the issues faced by each individual family members and the impact it may have on the whole family unit,
  • realize that individual family members have resources they can bring to overcome family issues, and
  • understand that resources a family may have goes beyond financial resources but includes individual coping capabilities, relational, time etc.

The poverty simulation was useful to place us in the shoes of people's lives that we would have otherwise never encountered.
