Decriminalising Suicide Attempts in Malaysia

In what many are saying is a long overdue move, the Malaysian government is planning to amend the Penal Code, to decriminalise suicide attempts. We discuss this welcome plan, and look at other mechanisms that can be put in place to address the mental health issues behind suicide attempts. If you need emotional support, you can call Befrienders at 603-79568145 or email sam@befrienders.org.my.
