Youth mental challenges adversely impact academic performance, cripple lives and become an economic burden to society.  When left unchecked, these troubled youth will enter the workforce and drag down workplace productivity.

 

This course aims to build a sustainable ecosystem that tackles youth mental health challenges which are complex problems.

Our approach to build a Sustainable Ecosystem for School Mental Wellness

Our groundbreaking Peer Support Development Program aims to an ecosystem surrounding the troubled youths with teachers, parents, sibling, students and social groups like clubs and societies.

The ecosystem will have capabilities for early intervention, personalized yet cost-effective solution to the troubled youths. We will develop a school culture that fosters a positive mental health orientation and literacy, accept, remove and manage negative emotions like worry, anxiety, anger and improve the overall wellbeing of our students. The desired result is that all student participants will become more resilient and school days will be more enjoyable and fulfilling.

Awareness, Early Identification and Intervention

It is disconcerting to know that many of our youth feel unsupported through their darkest periods and see suicide as the only choice to end their pain and struggles.  The best way tackle to the  complex youth mental problem is to solve it before it happen. We had developed BrainEEE Cards, the world’s only card system on Thinking Styles Group to identify Peer Group members that can effectively support any youth before they turn into troubled youth. This approach enables early Intervention to troubled youths by their peers who know someone at risk who need to seek help. We will be train them to develop a high level of empathy and our “Art of Tra La La” technique will help them to reach out and achieve breakthrough communications with troubled youths. This is a powerful approach to overcome barriers and to prevent the loss of precious lives and minimize misery.

Our solution will fully addressed Minister Indranee Rajah’s new curriculum that will help students understand common mental health issues and the symptoms, know when and how to seek help for themselves and others, and develop empathy and care towards persons with mental health issues.

Proposed Complex Problem-Solving Therapy

Mr. Seah Kian Peng, a member of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Social and Family Development stressed that, “…suicide is a complex issue, and that mental wellness is something all of us should be concerned about.” (Source: CNA, 29 Jul 2019) 

Numerous research findings provided validations that Problem-Solving Therapy addresses mental wellness. We have expertise in Complex Problem-Solving that we can equip the Peer Support Group to tackle complex youth mental challenges.  

Problem-Solving Therapy is a cost-effective  solution to help troubled youth deal with their problems head-on rather than avoid them or feel as though they are victims of circumstances. Our problem-solving therapy workshop is targeted to help to provide Peer Support Students with skills to prevent and reduce the severity of depression and anxiety in youth when they are dealing with challenges. This is prevention before mental health issues develops in the youth.

The Problem-Solving Therapy function like a vaccine that can be administered to everyone.  Youth suicide can prevented it at the earliest possible stage. Also, since the complex problem solving skills is an every green life-long skills set. The bonus benefits of this workshop is that we are also nurturing students early to be Work force 4.0.  These inevitability helps our Singapore students to become a productive worker with good mental wellness.
