About 1 in 50 Malaysians adults has either a depressive (excessive sadness) or anxiety (excessive fear) disorders that interfere with daily activities.
About 20% of the world’s children and adolescents have some form of mental/emotional (e.g. anxiety) or behavioral problems (e.g. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
Over 800,000 people worldwide commit suicide every year. In Malaysia, two people on average die of suicide every day.
Mental health problems (e.g. stress, anxiety, and depression) are important risk factors of getting other physical diseases such as a tension headache, gastritis, diabetes, hypertension, and coronary heart disease.
The recovery of physical illness (e.g. cancer) is often influenced by a person’s emotional state (e.g. hopelessness) and illness behaviors (e.g. compliance with medication and lifestyle changes).
Stigma and discrimination against patients and their families (e.g. perceived as weak, mad, dangerous, untreatable) prevent people from seeking help for mental or behavioral health problems.
Mental or behavioral health challenges could be effectively overcome by counseling, behavioral interventions, family education, medications, and other psycho-social strategies.
