Interested participants are expected to come from various government and private sector organizations for them to learn about psychoeducation and for them to be updated on the latest trends of psychoeducation that could be applied in the workplaces to prevent the involvement of people under stress to alleged suicide incidents that could result to the untimely demise of productive individuals.
The forum is expected to generate a good number of participants from different government and private organizations wanting to learn about the appropriate interventions, especially when their colleagues are under extreme pressure, for them to prevent them from committing suicide considering that suicide incidents among young professionals are somewhat on the rise.
