KUALA LUMPUR: International patron for World Mental Health Day Tengku Puteri Raja Tengku Puteri Iman Afzan Al-Sultan Abdullah has founded a social enterprise called the Green Ribbon Group to help push the mental health agenda forward in Malaysia.
The Green Ribbon Group said the foundation aimed to empower stakeholders involved in raising awareness of the monumental mental health issues people currently face and in creating viable solutions through advocacy, fundraising and collaboration.
“Tengku Puteri Iman Afzan is passionate and committed to the promotion of mental health. She believes, now more than ever, that access to mental healthcare is fundamental in ensuring the well-being of our society for generations to come, given the rise in stress, anxiety and depression from socio-economic issues faced by all as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, ” the statement said yesterday.
Tengku Puteri Iman Afzan was appointed the international patron for World Mental Health Day after accepting the invitation from the World Federation for Mental Health recently. Her royal patronage will run until October 2021.
