Background

HELP for Domestic Workers’s MeHeal Programme offers 1on1 counselling and group counselling services provided by counsellors on a pro bono basis to support migrant domestic workers who are facing mental health challenges.

What we have

(1) Briefing from the HELP team; (2) Guidelines for counsellors; (3) Additional tools & resources and (4) Venue if needed

Why this is important

Through the MeHeal programme, we support domestic workers who are facing mental health challenges. Through counselling services, domestic workers develop the tools to regulate their emotions and engage in self-care during times of adversity and therefore are in a better position to enforce their rights.
