Supporting Individuals in Difficult Times Training Workshops

When individuals around you are experiencing a difficult or challenging time, you may sometimes wish you could do something to help them. Additionally, as a NUS staff, you might sometimes be assigned to provide emotional or mental health support to another. Do you feel unsure or helpless on how to better help or support these individuals?

Having the desire to help is great. However, we also need to be equipped with knowledge and skills to provide the appropriate help and support that these individuals need.

Supporting Individuals in Difficult Times (SIDT) is a training workshop designed to equip and empower you to do so.    

At the SIDT training workshop, we aim to help you:
- Identify students or staff in need of help/support
- Provide appropriate assistance
- Know when and how to refer a student or staff for further assistance
- Learn basic helping skills
- Learn how to take care of yourself when you are supporting others

As this training covers important competencies and skills for mental health support, participants who do not attend the complete duration of this training will be required to repeat it in full.

The training is conducted by Health and Wellbeing – University Counselling Services.
