Suicide Prevention Awareness Workshop for Migrant Domestic Workers in Singapore

Updated: 5 days ago

On 12 May 2024, the Alliance of Domestic Employees Outreach (ADEO) – a movement under the Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA) – organized the LIFE Training workshop for the migrant domestic workers community in Singapore. This workshop aims to help participants identify potential suicide cases and introduces the basic principles of suicide identification and prevention through the LIFE Care Model (LIFE). The effort is supported by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), Caring For Life Ltd (CFL), and the Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (FAST). 

Conducted by CFL, the workshop is a half-day (4-hour) training program designed to equip participants with the skills to recognize signs of suicidal thoughts, positively engage with individuals who may be at risk, and connect them with community resources for intervention. 

The training emphasizes safety in engaging in conversations that encourage open dialogue about suicide, fostering an environment where such critical issues can be addressed. 

ADEO organises this workshop as part of the CARE Sister programme, equipping participants to become community carers. As they go for their deployments, those who have attended may be able to identify individuals with suicidal intent. This aligns with ADEO’s broader holistic care initiatives for migrant domestic workers, aiming to enhance their well-being and support their mental health.
