We encourage our members to participate in the upcoming mental health awareness week.

Next time when you're having your weekly staff meeting, consider a walking meeting and enjoy the smells and sounds of nature!
Please share with us any initiatives your companies have taken or will be taking in raising mental health awareness in the workplace.
We'd like to commend on our member Tony on sharing his personnel stories in the hope of empowering others to speak about their personal challenges. Read his inspiring story here.
