Mind over Stress (HP8001/NTU)

School is stressful, what with the projects, the deadlines, the politics and the social pressure. NTU understands that and provide this module for the students and help them to understand the different pressure and stressed faced by individuals living in Singapore. Stress management is one of the key tenets to success, and we think this is probably one of the top few picks students should try to go for, don’t you agree?

Are you okay? Mental Health in Singapore (HP8003/NTU)

Mental health is a bit of an iffy subject in Singapore society, and not much people know about how to go about detecting psychological issues before it’s too late, which is a pretty bad thing because, well, everyone’s afraid to speak up. This module is incredibly useful, telling you the early warning signs to look out for and the different avenues in Singapore you can seek help from like Polyclinics, Family Service Centres, etc.
