The Emotional Wellness programme enables a proactive approach which allows project beneficiaries and staff to be debriefed, which can involve relaying information about violence, abuse, and trauma, cause emotional distress and discomfort. It is a counselling service which promotes transparency and mutual supervision of staff. The programme also offers a support group for victims affected by trauma arising from different aspects of life circumstances and creates a safe platform to promote community discussion to help heal the broken hearts of people living in the community. A debriefing session with staff is conducted daily to discuss problems and challenges encountered throughout the day. If a staff member encounters a traumatic experience, then they can apply containment protocols. Supervision is conducted once a month. There is currently a domestic violence support group with 3 regular members.
