“Understanding Mental Health Issues” on 21 & 28 June, 8 to 10pm
As the Covid situation intensifies around the world, Singapore has also entered a stage of Heightened Alert with the increased number of Covid cases and clusters on this little red dot. Restrictions on group size down from 5 to 2, dining-in at restaurants, food courts suspended, weddings/events/religious gatherings capped at 50 persons only without PET, home-based work and the latest, home-based, online lessons for all schools from 19 May.
All these transitions and changes can and do cause people to be stressed, anxious, worried, fearful… and affects us mentally and emotionally which can lead to more serious consequences. Mental Health is a concern we need to be aware of and addressed in the way that makes Christian caregiving different from general ‘secular’ caregiving.
Pastor Chua Seng Lee, Deputy Senior Pastor and Elder at BBTC for the past 28 years will be conducting the training on zoom for two consecutive Mondays from 8 – 10 pm
In 2011, Pastor Chua published “My Voice – Overcoming”, a book project with Elim Chew and Danny Yeo, which captures the voices of people who have experienced and overcame depression. He has also started various initiatives to reach out to youth and young adults on building resilience to overcome mental distress. In 2018, he co-founded the Christian Mental Health Advocates with like-minded mental health professionals, and from there launched Mental Health Survey for Pastors (2020), and the inaugural Christian Mental Health Conference (2021).
