The rising suicide cases in Malaysia during the pandemic calls for a better mental healthcare system for Malaysians and the change could come from MySejahtera’s mental health support.

MySejahtera is an app that most Malaysians have in their smartphones already.

Khairy Jamaluddin then said that it is important that more investment is made in mental health not only to destigmatise mental health but to create better access for all Malaysians.

Good mental health is as important as maintaining physical health. No one should be left behind in seeking support and treatment. We must look after each other

Khairy Jamaluddin at the virtual launch of Mental Health Strategic Plan (2020-2025).

Online counselling services are available but it could cost you.

You could also be referred to a hospital, and get consultations there. This whole process might be tedious and extraneous for some.

The addition of mental health support in MySejahtera could cut through all that and keep you at home, where you might feel more comfortable.
