For young to middle-aged clients with mental health issues, a vital component of reintegrating to community involves holding steady employment so that they can be financially independent and have a sense of self-worth. Singapore Anglican Community Services provides a wide range of employment services to develop clients’ potential and help them gain and sustain employment in the competitive job market.
Work Integrated Skills Training (WIST):
WIST is a 5-week (Monday to Friday) half-day program, designed to prepare clients for employment and community integration with essential skills and knowledge for the workforce. The three domains of learning are Personal Effectiveness (e.g. conflict resolution), Wellness Management (e.g. stress management), and Employability Skills (e.g. customer services). Through interactive training and team activities, these topics are facilitated by in-house trainers and peer specialists who are present to provide lived experiences in a warm, support and positive learning environment.
