Course Overview

Psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors and other mental health experts have reported treating an increasing number of people with significant stress and anxiety issues resulting from the outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis. New stressors such as restricted social connections during circuit breakers and lock-downs, loss of freedom and security to do normal daily activities, fear of death and economic uncertainty are threatening the mental health of people worldwide.


This e-learning course aims to equip learners with practical knowledge, skills and techniques to manage their stress during a crisis using the 5R stress buster strategy-Recognise-Reframe-Recharge-Reach-out-Resilience. Through daily practice of this 5R Stress Busters Strategy, learners would develop optimism and resilience to turn pain into gain to rise above Covid-19 crisis. In the process, they would also be able to reach out to their families, friends, colleagues, and the community in a concerted effort to rise above the Covid-19 crisis.

We thank our partner, Health Promotion Board, for their contributions in selected sections of this course.
