Green Ribbon Group’s visit to London
“Green Ribbon Group, London, 27 June to 1 July 2022” – The Green Ribbon Group was part of the first Malaysian delegation to attend the 23rd World Federation for Mental Health Congress, led by our Founder and President YAM Tengku Puteri Iman Afzan, whose Patronage of the Congress was the first for an Asian representative. We presented twice at the WFMH Congress and also hosted a roundtable with Malaysian students and stakeholders at the High Commission.
Addressing Mental Health Challenges in Unison
The pandemic has pushed mental health problems out into the open. While this may seem bleak for a post-Covid-19 Malaysia, there are ways to address and manage mental health in our country. More importantly, the problems can be addressed by all of us – those in positions of leadership and authority and the wider community. The path forward is not linear nor is it constrained or limited to the government or mental health professionals alone. We are all stakeholders.
Mental Health & Well-being in the Workplace
Given the Covid-19 pandemic, some of us have had to adjust to new working arrangements, while others have suffered from pay cuts and retrenchment. We are therefore proud to have been given the opportunity to assist Takaful Malaysia with “Mental Health and Well-being in the Workplace,” a guide that was distributed to their 1,000 employees in January 2022.
