Mind Matters: What is Community Mental Health?

Mental health is not just about illnesses like depression or bipolar disorder – it also refers to the stresses you face in your daily life and your resilience in overcoming these challenges. For low-income communities, socio-economic issues like poverty, welfare or parenting problems present significant risks for mental health problems and often have to be addressed by community services before they are able to provide mental health interventions. On the Mind Matters series, we will be featuring SOLS Health and their community partners to look at how they address mental health problems in the B40 community through the lens of these socio-economic issues.

                                               

If you need emotional support, you can call Befrienders at 603-79568145 or email sam@befrienders.org.my.
