Event Details

Session is scheduled for Monday, 16th August, 11.30 am-1 pm. 

The aim of the sessions is to train individuals from the student body to act as first responders to anyone who might need urgent assistance with regards to a mental health crisis (such as anxiety episodes and panic attacks). The first responders will undergo a thorough training session under the guidance of Dr. Arvinder Singh.

The Gatekeeper program is only for postgraduate students, and undergraduate second years, third years, and ASP students. While we were looking forward to starting an offline semester, the transition is yet to happen. Therefore, on the advisory of the ACWB, first-year students would be let in after they are settled in. Senior students will be given preference as juniors will be given more opportunities in the future.

There will be two  sessions held this month.

There are only a limited number of slots. The first 40 students to sign up will be selected for the training on a first come first serve basis. The capping has been done to ensure that the quality of the sessions is preserved. The Ministry will contact the students thereafter.

TW: The mention of symptoms of anxiety disorders and other illnesses might be distressing. Therefore, we strongly advise you to take this into consideration before signing-up.


The First Responder System is meant to provide swift support in the mitigation of a sudden crisis situation and is under no circumstances a substitute for counseling sessions or therapy. It is highly recommended that students facing mental health issues approach the ACWB for appointments.
