Currently, the Green Ribbon Group is working towards the following initiatives:

In collaboration with the Malaysian Mental Health Association (MMHA), the Green Ribbon Group is channelling seed money towards setting up support groups for those using mental health services and caregivers. These support groups would be in states that currently do not have any. It is often in these areas where mental health awareness is low, and stigma and prejudice are high. In an effort to strengthen psychosocial support in communities, caregivers would be trained prior to leading the support groups. Moreover, the support groups could be based in hospital psychiatric units to help strengthen resources and work alongside mental health professionals.

At RM600 per person, the Mental Health First Aid (MFHA) training is run by MMHA for any interested adult who is willing to learn how to support those who are developing mental health problems (such as depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation and self-harm, substance abuse and an eating disorder), as well as those experiencing a mental health crisis (such as panic attacks, psychosis, aggressive behaviours, and effects from alcohol and drug abuse). If you are interested in this course please visit https://mmha.org.my/mental-health-first-aid/ for more information and email us at [email protected].

The Green Ribbon Group will support anyone in need of clinical psychological help at RM50 per session with MMHA.

The Green Ribbon Group has initiated ‘A Conversation on Suicide’ – a two-hour training module targeted to the Rukun Tetangga, management associations of low / medium-cost housing, schools and anyone who is interested to be of service to their community. At RM400 per session, ‘A Conversation on Suicide’ aims to create suicide prevention awareness and offer interim help to those who need it the most.

At a maximum of RM10,000 per university, the Green Ribbon Effective Agent Training (GREAT) Project encompasses introduction to mental health, empathy training and advocacy. It is based on the theme, “A Community Approach to Students’ Mental Health.” Participants design their own advocacy campaign on a topic of their choice, and they will advocate for mental health in their respective colleges and faculties throughout the year.
