PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme

The PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme is an evidence-based positive psychology program that aims to boost individual well-being and quality of life. It is a comprehensive well-being programme centred on six themes:

·    Positive emotions

·    Resilience

·    Identity (character strengths)

·    Meaning

·    Engagement and stress management

·    Relationships

Just like how a primer coat of paint protects against corrosion and rust; our PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme is designed to equip individuals with relevant knowledge and skills to improve personal wellbeing.

Effectiveness of the PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme

In a pilot research study conducted, our participants showed significant improvement in their wellbeing and resilience. They also experienced a decrease in perceived stress levels after completing the PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme. 

Disclaimer: The significant improvements in wellbeing reported for individuals who had undergone the PRIMERTM Wellbeing Programme were based on a pilot research study comprising 41 participants. Improvements in wellbeing may vary between individuals.
