About (GIRA)
The Global Institute for Resilience Advancement

In the ever-evolving landscape of our VUCAH World (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity, and Hyper-connectivity), where challenges loom large and conventional models crumble, a bold shift has occurred. The once-revered mantra of “think global and apply local” has given way to the demanding perspective of “Innovate Globally, Integrate Locally.” The urgency for change and adaptation is palpable as we navigate through volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity, and health crises.

In response to this paradigm shift, we present a transformative and comprehensive approach to tackling global challenges. Our vision underscores the intricate links between psychological, biological, and societal facets, recognizing the need for a holistic strategy to adapt and thrive in this changing world. The call is clear—to mend the global machine, we must transcend the traditional “think global, act local” mindset and embrace creative thinking.

“In today’s rapidly changing landscape, marked by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity, and Hyperconnectivity (VUCAH), it’s imperative to navigate with agility and foresight. The constant shifts in market trends (Volatility) and unpredictable external factors (Uncertainty) necessitate a proactive approach. Moreover, the intricate interplay of various elements (Complexity) and the blurred lines between cause and effect (Ambiguity) make strategic decision-making a challenging task. In this era of unprecedented connectivity (Hyperconnectivity), being aware of and adapting to the VUCAH components is essential for success.”


By attending this informational course, I agree and acknowledge that the informative program that I am attending is a philanthropic noncommercial effort offered by the Mental Wellness Society, and I will not engage in any activities to monetize or portray myself as a mental health professional or crisis counselor, unless otherwise certified to do so. This program is designed to provide maximum information in a short time, consisting of non-certifying sessions and access to an online multimedia open-source library to equip me with knowledge on how to be helpfully caring and attentive to others in crisis. I understand that The Mental Wellness Society cannot be held responsible for any consequences resulting from my voluntary choice to help others.

I recognize that the training I receive is not equivalent to a trauma or psychological certification. In the event of discomfort within myself or discomfort from others dealing with me, I commit to recommending consultation with professional healthcare providers without hesitation.

This humanitarian, non-political safe space is open to all! Let’s keep it respectful, peaceful, positive, and non-confrontational.
