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, these groups would be led by those struggling and caregivers. They could also be based in hospital psychiatric units to help strengthen resources and work alongside mental health professionals.
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). The Green Ribbon Group has always advocated for mental health to be part of our nation’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. For first respondents or those who are the first point of contact such as parents, teachers, nurses and general practitioners, as well as for those who are involved in humanitarian or social work, 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]
In response to the mental health crisis we are facing, the Green Ribbon Group will support anyone in need of counselling or clinical psychological help at RM50.00 per session with the Malaysian Mental Health Association. Counselling services are available between the hours of 9AM to 9PM (Daily) and subject to the counsellor’s availability.
In collaboration with the Malaysian Mental Health Association (MMHA), Make it Right Movement (MIRM) and the Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing (CMHW) at HELP University, the Green Ribbon Group has initiated the rolling out of ‘A Conversation on Suicide’ – 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. ‘A Conversation on Suicide’ aims to create suicide prevention awareness and offer interim help to those who need it the most.
