Personnel of DOH CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) today started a two-day training for Department of Education personnel from various parts of the region.

The training focuses on the conduct of Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) including sessions on stress debriefing and pyschological first aid. 

A total of three batches were conducted at Ciudad Christia Resort in San Mateo, Rizal from November 2-3, 4-5 and 8-9 targeting heath care workers, service providers and teachers. 

According to Paulina V. Calo, Regional Mental Health Outcome Manager, providing psychological support to individuals who are greatly distress is very important because it is the best a way to approach someone in distress, assess what help he or she needs, and help him or her to obtain that help. (mtvn)
