Mental Health Advocacy.

why is youth mental health advocacy important to you?

Advocating for youth mental health holds profound importance as they represent the canvas upon which our future is painted. Drawing from personal struggles, my dedication lies in empowering them with the skills and resources needed to create a vibrant, resilient tomorrow.

how would you describe mental health in your community?

Within my community, mental health is an evolving tapestry of emotions and thoughts. While awareness in on the rise, genuine comprehension remains a challenge. I’m committed to bridging this gap, fostering empathy and facilitating true understanding for lasting well-being.

Project Summary

The JEMS (Jelajah Minda Sihat) pilot program, set to be initiated in four schools, serves as a comprehensive initiative to cultivate enduring positive change in Malaysian youth mental health.
