Coping mechanisms is important to decrease the negative impacts of COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, the main objective of this research is to identify on coping mechanisms (positive reinterpretation and growth, active coping, denial, use of emotional social support, acceptance) and perceived stress among working individuals during COVID-19 pandemic. The location that has been selected to conduct this study is at Bengoh Resettlement Scheme (BRS), Kuching, Sarawak with sample size of 32 respondents among working individuals. The Statistical Package for Social Science (SSPS) has been used to run the reliability analysis, the normality analysis, and the inferential analysis such as Independent Sample T-Test, One-Way ANOVA, Pearson Correlation and Multiple Regression. The result of this research found that there is no significant differences in perceived stress among working individuals based on gender, age and marital status. Besides, the coping mechanisms such as positive reinterpretation and growth, active coping,use of emotional social support and acceptance is significantly correlated with perceived stress. Only denial is not significantly correlated with perceived stress. Next, use of emotional social support is the dominant coping mechanisms that influence perceived stress among working individuals.
