Mental health issues are on the rise and will require early intervention.

In view of this, Heriot-Watt University Malaysia (“HWUM” or the “University”) and the Green Ribbon Group (“GRG”) are joining forces to empower youth to promote positive mental health.

The two partners signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the University’s Putrajaya campus today (9 June 2022) to formalise their collaborative effort to conduct a 1.5-day training programme called The Green Ribbon Effective Agent Training (GREAT) Project which is set to kick-start in October 2022.

The MoU signatories were HWUM Provost and Chief Executive Officer Professor Mushtak Al-Atabi and GRG Founder and President Yang Amat Mulia Tengku Puteri Raja Tengku Puteri Iman Afzan Al-Sultan Abdullah. Also present as witness signatories were HWUM Chief Operating Officer and Registrar, Janice Yew and GRG Co-Founder and Vice President Puteri Nor Ariane Yasmin.
