Join us for this My Mental Health webinar, part of the My Mind On FilmFestival launch, where we will discuss how we can take care of our mental health, as individuals, and as groups, families, and larger communities. We’ll be joined by an array of wonderful guests bringing diverse perspectives on how we define and experience mental health individually, as well as a society, and how that might shape what we can do to make it better.
Prof. Dato’ Dr Andrew Mohanraj, president of the Malaysian Mental Health Association and Board Member of the World Federation for Mental Health will share insights from the local and global perspectives.
Datuk Munirah Abdul Hamid, President of Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam Malaysia (PERTIWI), has combined a dual career of entrepreneurship and social work for almost five decades. Datuk Munirah will share her experience and passion for engagement with the homeless and urban poor, including those struggling to cope with mental illness.
Salahaddin Pordel, a psychology student at HELP University, is committed to normalising and mainstreaming our conversations around mental health. Talking about his role as a My Mind On Film festival committee member he says: “To be a part of something that helps bring mental to individuals’ dining tables, to their casual everyday talk with a mate, to their here and now feelings and thoughts… leaves me with but the most heartfelt gratitude! Because that’s where mental health belongs, within the individual and among the people, not in universities or in lecture halls.”
And of course, most important of all, we look forward to having you join us to listen in and share your ideas if you want!
