The MHA Appreciation and Award ceremony was held on the 14th of November 2017. This ceremony was organised to recognise the contributions and participation of psychologists from various government agencies including MSF, IMH and various public hospitals as well as psychologists from Singapore Psychological Society. In addition, the Red Cross as well as the People’s Association were also recognised.
SPS was recognised as members had signed up earlier in the year to volunteer for the HEART team in support of Singapore’s efforts to target trauma and terrorism under the SG secure movement. HEART which stands for Human Emergency Assistance and Response Teams, are made up of psychologists from MHA, MSF and IMH who have been conducting WHO’s Psychological First Aid training to grassroots leaders and volunteers from the various constituencies following the launch of SG Secure earlier this year.
Our SPS President, Clare Yeo was present to receive the award on behalf of SPS.
