Head of Mental Health & Counselling Services, HealthServe Ltd, Singapore
Justin Paul has been involved in cross-cultural work since he joined the social service sector since 2009 when he made the career switch. His current role sees him increasing awareness and understanding of mental wellness among migrant workers and the respective stakeholders.
His work currently covers aspects from preventive (awareness building and education), to interventions (counselling support and psychiatric care) as well as community support from those returning from medical treatment. He believes that aside from the person directly involved, it is important to keep in mind those affected by such incidents and to attend to them in order to prevent further mental distress on these persons, or to prevent them from becoming people who need help as well.
