Saving the future minds of Malaysia
Depression will be a major mental health illness among Malaysians by 2020. According to the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015, every THREE (3) in 10 adults aged 16 years and above are prone to experience some sort of mental problems. In Malaysia, the prevalence of mental health problems among adults increased from 10.7 per cent in 1996 to 11.2 per cent in 2006, to 29.2 per cent in 2015. Mental health problems are more prevalent in females, younger adults, and those from low-income families. The biggest rise is in Kuala Lumpur, currently at 39.8 per cent. However, only a small amount is properly diagnosed, and of those who are, few ever get treatment or receive appropriate care.
Sime Darby Property, in collaboration with Yayasan Sime Darby, Malaysian Mental Health Association (MMHA) and Mental Illness Awareness and Support Association (MIASA) launched the Sime Darby Property Great Minds Campaign, to bring awareness to mental health issues through 3 key pillar.
