Dewan Rakyat Passes Bill To Decriminalise Attempted Suicide

Good news! The Dewan Rakyat has passed the billl to decriminalise attempted suicide, a historic move for the country. This has been a long time coming for us, so we unpack the journey that's been taken to reach this decision with Dr Kelvin Yii, who's been a strong advocate of this in parliament. Then, we talked about how we, as a community, can build a more supportive system.
