Mind Matters: What is Community Mental Health?
Ellisha Othman, Managing Director, SOLS Health | Anita Ahmad, Senior Vice President, Head of Community Development, Yayasan Hasanah
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.
