To individuals

Never forget to self-care. As peers, we are often the first to notice subtle changes in our colleague's/friend's/family member's behaviour.

Being equipped with basic peer support and psychological first aid skills will be beneficial in providing and linking our peers to relevant assistance when needed. We all have a part to play in improving the mental well-being support in the community and workplaces.
