It has become absolutely mission-critical – crucial to organizational health and productivity. Here’s why…
Demographically speaking, loss and grief in life are inevitable in a society with:
Without doubt, healthcare workers will bear the brunt of this mental and emotional impact – from being on the scene witnessing these things first-hand, from exhausted caregivers, and from the patients themselves.

Mental Health & Grief: What’s the Connection?
What has Grief to do with mental health? A lot! Unresolved grief often leads to depression. So to keep our mental health at its best, we must properly process the grief we feel whenever we are hit by life’s unexpected changes, curved balls and disruptions. This program provides valuable tips for safeguarding your mental health and emotional well-being.
‘First Aid’ for Emotional Well-being [For Managers & Peer Support Leaders]
This program empowers managers and peer support leaders to support their colleagues through tough times, with the goal of optimising individual well-being and improving team morale. At your request, we can also coach them in their peer support role on an ongoing basis, serving as the specialized resource they can tap on, beyond the initial triage or ‘first-aid’ response.
Managing the Aftermath: Post-Incident Intervention
Unexpected incidents in the workplace can cause a sense of shock, loss and grief, affecting team morale and individual well-being. When that happens, we come in to help employees:
We do this through talks, employee well-being circles, and one-to-one sessions – or a combination of all or any of the above.

With our unique blend of empathy, expertise and experience in loss and grief, we equip executives with our proven arsenal of tools for healthy Response, Recovery and Resilience – enabling them to bounce back and thrive despite the ‘curved balls’, transitions and disruptions of life.

“CLEARLY A SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT”
“I would definitely recommend Whispering Hope. Clearly a subject matter expert who has a wealth of knowledge and the ability to give pragmatic yet insightful advice to anyone who is trying to learn more about the journey in overcoming grief.”
“It was Women’s Health Week, so our employee resource group, SHINE, thought that organising a talk on emotional health might be interesting for our members. My colleague from HR suggested that I contact Gracie Mak from Whispering Hope to find out more.
After speaking to Gracie and listening to the two radio interviews that she did on News Radio 938, I was pretty sure that Gracie would be very qualified to come talk to our employees about this topic.
Generally, we tend to have a lot of misconceptions about grief and how to get over grief. Doing a talk like this at a company/organisation level certainly increases awareness.
Everyone will go through grief in life, so it is better to be educated about grief in the right way, or at least to know who to approach, if help is needed.”

“GREAT SESSION. TREMENDOUS PASSION & VIGOUR”
– Lisa Low, Talent Management Director, Asia
“The session was really great. Gracie Mak speaks with tremendous passion and vigour, and gave vivid real-life examples and stories of loss and grief.”
“As part of our HR Learning Forum, we invited Whispering Hope to speak to our staff on emotional wellness. The session was really great. Gracie Mak speaks with tremendous passion and vigour, and gave vivid real-life examples and stories of loss and grief. Majority (above 80%) of the participants agreed that the session was interesting, relevant and effective in educating them about loss and grief.”
Loss and grief are part and parcel of life. When employees face major ‘curved balls’, crises, transitions and disruptions in life, they may struggle with loss and grief, impacting their productivity and decision-making.
Grief often exacts an unseen and unheard burden on organisations, resulting in:
There are more than 40 major losses in life that can severely disrupt a person’s sense of well-being and motivation in life, and those most commonly affecting the workplace include:
