The KDU Counselling Unit under the KDU Student Empowerment Programmes has launched its first Support Group to enhance students’ emotional well-being and help them to deal with life challenges and difficulties in a supported environment. Being in a group is a natural extension of the way we live our daily lives. We encounter and are involved in varying types of groupings, such as, being a member of a club, work group, class and families. We learn from others in a group and build meaningful relationships with each other.
Besides, supporting groups provide great opportunity for its members to share life experiences, learn new perspectives, explore and experiment with new behaviours in a safe and supportive environment. We aim to create a great place for students to experience growth and positive change. Most of the members have not only received enormous understanding, enrichment, and encouragement; they also have changed some perceptions, gained new ideas, and viewpoints through their discussion. Some of our participants shared that they experienced anxiety at first, but at the end, they felt that the group experience was helpful and fun beyond their expectations. Here are what our participants have to say about the support group.
"I like the support group and was able to meet up with a lot of cool kids."
"I always thought that a support group is very much like a workshop or class, boring and having limited communication among participants, but my support group experience was warm, encouraging and also fun."
“I felt the group members are connected and the group discussion strengthened our bond.”
The support group is designed based on requests and needs from students. Students are welcome to drop us enquiries and register for this support group. You do not want to miss this opportunity to connect with others as well as to understand yourself better.
