Listen Ladies

Ever want someone to just listen to you when you're not feeling 100%? Sometimes in our expat life, we may experience anxiety, isolation, depression or other difficult mental and life challenges. But you're not alone. Come by our meeting. The Listen Ladies is a new peer support group for the AWA to help you cope with problems we may not see on the outside. We have a compassionate group of Listen Ladies who will hear you out in a confidential and supportive monthly meeting. We also will have resources to share in terms of personal experience and peer advice, as well as referrals to professional support.

We will meet once an month on Mondays, 1pm to 2 pm at the AWA offices at 15 Scotts Road. We will have a forthcoming Facebook group page to share information and you can contact the chairperson, Andrea McKenna Brankin, at listenladies@awasingapore.org if you have any questions.

Listen Ladies will be here Nov. 11 and Dec. 9 to support you just before the holidays. In the meantime, anyone in need of a listening ear can email Andrea at the email address above for personal support. 

Here's excerpt form Listen Lady Andrea's "You're Not Alone..." column in the latest issue of the AWA's Bamboo Telegraph magazine, Holiday FOMO: Fear of Missing Out at the Holidays:

"Living in a place other than your own country is a constant challenge, as we are often reminded that we may not truly belong. That emotion isn't coming from meannes of others as much as out internal narrative that connects our experiences with places that we feel we ought to be, especially during the holidays...

For some, not having the comforts and sensibilities of home around the holidays can trigger feelings of depression. It may be temporary, perhaps just a day here and there, but if it's ongoing for weeks, know that it's time to address it by seeing a trained counselor or medical doctors who can help you."   

All communications are confidential, including e-mails, texts, phone calls and meetings. Please consider attending if you need a little moral support! We're listening because we care about our AWA ladies and want you to have the most fulfilling life you can while you're here in Singapore. 

Thank you for your interest in the AWA events and activities. It is of utmost importance to us that members find placement in their preferred area of interest. As all AWA events and activities are run by volunteers, there are times, due to travel schedules, you may not receive an immediate reply to your email. We do apologize! If you have not heard back from the activity chair within a reasonable time frame please send an email to the board representative at specialint@awasingapore.org so that we can follow up on your behalf!
