TW : Suicide

Thank you YB Michelle Ng Mei Sze ้ป„็พŽ่ฏ— and YB Kelvin Yii Lee Wuen ไฟžๅˆฉๆ–‡ for advocating for the decriminalization of #suicide.

In March this year, de facto law minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said a study on proposed amendments to the law to decriminalise suicide attempts was almost finished and would be submitted to the Cabinet for approval.

In September, our then Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said that his ministry had earlier submitted a memorandum for a moratorium on the prosecution and conviction involving attempted suicides to the Cabinet, with the decision on whether to decriminalise suicide attempts in Malaysia now up to the Cabinet.

www.channelnewsasia.com/asia/decriminalising-suicides-lies-malaysias-cabinet-2971011

......

Suicide is still considered a criminal offence in at least 20 countries around the world with some archaic laws dating back more than 100 years. In 2019, all health ministers at the World Health Assembly approved the World Health Organization (WHO) Mental Health Action Plan for 2021-2030, thereby agreeing that decriminalizing suicide was an effective way to reduce deaths by suicide. Decriminalizing suicide is a mental health intervention, it allows people in acute distress to reach out and seek help without fear.

Follow our socials for more information on decriminalizing #suicide and why it's important.Trigger warning: suicide. You may choose if you'd like to read on but we would advise against doing so should the subject matter cause you distress. If you have been distressed after reading, please seek help by calling the helplines at the end or with your nearest healthcare provider.

I remember this case oh-so-vividly.

It was 2018, not too long after GE14. It was a Tuesday. We had service night.

I was in the office seeing a resident and saw a call on my phone from the head of Subang Jaya's Fire Department. I didn't pick up the call as I was attending to an issue.

But he called again.

I knew then that it was urgent.

I picked up.

"YB I need your help."
"You need my help? I am the one who'd usually ask you for help."
"Yes. It's urgent. We're handling an attempted suicide case now and need help with communication in English or Chinese. You're the only one who we feel the young victim can identify with and who would be calm enough in this situation."
"But I am not trained."
"We don't have a choice."

I dropped everything and went over.

Negotiations took a long time. 3 hours, I recalled.

The place was dark and dangerous. Dangerous enough that based on the firemen's assessment, rescue efforts had a 50-50 chance of success.

Those 3 hours was emotional. The person and I talked about issues surrouding family, friends, studies, stress. I tried to convince that person that life is worth living and that this too, shall pass.

We were talking with a wall between us. It was dark. I didn't know what was going on on the other side.

Suddenly, I heard a thud. The person's family members squealed. I thought the worst had happened. My heart sank.

Sounds of a scuffle followed after the thud. "Dia okay! Dia okay!" I heard the firemen shout. They were able to save the person. Thank God.

But that relief soon swept away. The policemen came by. A police car quickly pulled up. "Dia perlu dibawa ke balai."

I knew why. Attempted suicide is an offence. But how do you explain that to someone and his/her family members after going through that ordeal?

"What does this mean?" The person's family asked.
"They just need to take your statement." I said.

"I will make sure that everything is okay." I added. I didn't know whether this was a promise I could keep. But I had to, by hook or by crook, ensure that this person is safe.

I made sure that the person was not placed in lock-up.
I quickly called a lawyer to be on standby in case charges were brought.
And I pleaded with the police to exercise his discretion and mediate the case instead.

"What if the person repeats the act? It will be my fault" said the police.
"Given what the person is going through, I can only hope that the act isn't repeated in custody. This person needs medical intervention, not prison." I said.

Upon the parents' undertaking that they'll keep a close watch, the case was resolved.

But that got me thinking - not everyone who finds themselves in this person's situation is as lucky.

And so I began advocating to repeal S.309 of the Penal Code. Along the way, I found partners in YB Kelvin Yii Lee Wuen ไฟžๅˆฉๆ–‡ and YB Lim Yi Wei ๆž—ๆ€กๅจ. Today, we met with Deputy Law Minister, YB Ramkarpal Singh to discuss the matter.

Whilst we acknowledge the need for improvements in the law so that our system provides help for persons who attempt suicide - this has been in discussion for far too long. Since the announcement of the government's intent to decriminalise attempted suicide in 2020, many have been sent to prison under this archaic law.

I urge this government to pronounce a moratorium on Section 309 of the Penal Code whilst we wait for the repealing bill to be tabled. This can be done quickly in the next Parliamentary sitting. Further enhancements in the law can come after.

Should there be any concern in there being a lacuna - the government can instruct, administratively, for the police to invoke its powers under Section 10 of the Mental Health Act in cases of attempted suicide to admit the person into a psychiatric hospital.

Bureaucracy should not cost lives.

If you are reading this and if you are going through a difficult time, you are not alone. Reach out for help. You may call The Befrienders (03-76272929), Life Line (03-42657995), Sneham (04-43988597) or Talian Kasih (15999). You may also reach out to your nearest healthcare provider.

In order to address the growing social issues, Community Social Support Centres (CSSC) will be opened around the state, according to Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah, Minister for Women, Childhood, and Community Wellbeing Development.

CSSC Kuching is a public-private-civil society collaboration to provide an integrated reference, support and social intervention centre in the community for groups at risk and affected by social issues or problems in Kuching.

For the benefit of community well-being and social inclusivity in Sarawak, Fatimah hopes that through CSSC Kuching, collaborations between organizations, non-profits, strategic partners, and all related parties would continue.

Check out this episode with Thrive Well and The Friendship Bench project. Delivering community based mental health and emotional support in low-resource settings is very much possible.Imagine youโ€™re struggling with serious problems in your life that you canโ€™t cope with, like relationship problems or losing your job. Perhaps youโ€™re going through a mental health problem, like anxiety.

You canโ€™t get to a psychologist or psychiatrist, because there just arenโ€™t any where you live, or because itโ€™s too expensive to see one. In Zimbabwe, where there are only 18 psychiatrists in the country, or where people are too impoverished to even afford bus fares to visit a healthcare facility, a WHO-recognised initiative called @friendshipbenchzimbabwe brings mental health support to the community by training grandmothers in talk therapy.

Dr Ruth Verhey, International Friendship Bench Lead, joins Ellisha Othman, Managing Director of Thrive Well, to discuss the role of lay people in providing mental health support in the community.

#WHO #WorldMentalHealthReport
โ€œEvery country has ample opportunity to make meaningful progress towards better mental health for its population. Whether developing stronger mental health policies and laws, covering mental health in insurance schemes, developing or strengthening community mental health services or integrating mental health into general health care, schools, and prisons, the many examples in this report show that the strategic changes can make a big difference.โ€

Recommendations for action:
1. Deepen the value and commitment we give to mental health.
- Include people with mental health conditions in all aspects of society and decision-making to overcome stigma and discrimination, reduce disparities and promote social justice.

2. Reshape environments that influence mental health, including homes, communities, schools, workplaces, health care services, natural environments.

3. Strengthen mental health care by changing where, how, and by whom mental health care is delivered and received.

For decades mental health has been one of the most overlooked areas of public health, receiving a tiny part of the attention and resources it needs and deserves.
In 2019, nearly 1 billion people โ€“ including 14% of the worldโ€™s adolescents - were living with a mental disorder.

WHO calls on all stakeholders to work together to deepen the value and commitment given to mental health, reshape the environments that influence mental health and strengthen the systems that care for peopleโ€™s mental health.

In August 2020 when Stigma2StrengthSingapore was launched, there were 2 prayer requests that I made.

1)To have an opportunity to share my story with those in the faith community especially pastors and church leaders as suicide still remains a huge taboo among the Christian community. That prayer was answered last year when in Aug 2021 Pastor Chua Seng Lee of Bethesda Bedok Tampines Church invited me to present to his church congregation.

2)To be able to share my story with medical professionals . This prayer was answered when I was recently invited by the head of Psychiatry at Hospital Lahad Datu in Sabah, Malaysia which joined a collaborative effort by Hospital Mesra Bukit Padang & Non Communicable Disease Unit State Health Department of Sabah to spread awareness of suicide prevention to health care workers and also members of the public.
The Malaysian state of Sabah has one of the highest suicide rates in the country.

Iโ€™m honoured and humbled to be part of Program Sinar Hati organised in conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day.

Joshโ€™s death has not been in vain as I add a 4th year in my grief journey as a suicide loss survivor and I thank all who have supported Stigma2StrengthSingapore as it continues in its work in public education. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Happening this Saturday featuring our volunteer Maclean Patrickโœจ"BUSINESS CLASS" MENTAL HEALTH TALK 2022โœจ

Hi, everyone!๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป. Poor mental health of university students is becoming a serious issue in many countries. Malaysia - a leading country for Asia-Pacific education - is one of them. Despite the governmentโ€™s effort to raise awareness, Malaysian studentsโ€™ mental health remains challenging, exacerbated by the studentsโ€™ negative attitudes towards mental health (mental health attitudes).

Our talk will be a place for all of us to share, discuss and gain support from each other. Our webinar will be started on:

Date : 11 June 2022
Time : 10 A.M - 12.45 P.M
Place : Facebook Live www.facebook.com/osys.sarawak/
Registration link : docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdEchV5MWPdkh3NfYe3mf32dCGGkWJkOA0bfvfs1WvGdWS5sg/viewform

Juh, hari Sabtu ni!Siapapun kita, setiap individu pasti menghadapi isu-isu atau masalah kesihatan mental dalam satu-satu masa.

Contohnya, kesedihan kerana kehilangan seseorang/ kehilangan pekerjaan, masalah kewangan, masalah di tempat kerja/ kolej, minum arak berlebihan dan lain-lain.

Jika tidak ditangani dengan baik, ia boleh memburuk dan menyebabkan penyakit mental.

Dengan mengenali isu-isu berkaitan serta kaedah untuk menghadapinya dengan baik, anda dapat belajar untuk membantu diri anda dan juga orang-orang sekeliling.

Our current Education Chair, Laura Kho, spoke at the Taylor's University Pharmacy Students' Society - TUPSS Public Health Campaign a few weeks ago.Spent Saturday morning speaking at the @PHC2022LiveWellAgeWell, organized by Taylor's University Pharmacy Students' Society - TUPSS. It's always a pleasure when my two worlds of #pharmacy and mental health advocacy converge. I am especially pleased that TuPSS's theme of Live Well, Age Well prominently featured mental health as an integral component of health, rather than an afterthought.

I talked about our work in Mind Brew and Mental Health Association of Sarawak, touching on the importance of building mental capital and upstream interventions. From our participants in Mind Brew Conversations we have seen an overarching theme of disconnection as a root cause of mental distress - disconnection from self, from people around us, from a secure future, and from meaningful values/purpose. Reconnecting, which implies an action which we have to take, is key to addressing and preventing mental distress. I also talked about the biopsychosocial model of mental health and how that relates to myths about pharmacological treatment for mental health disorders.

Looking forward to more opportunities to keep the conversation about #mentalhealth going with my professional peers.

๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ“ข Good news! The cost of mental health consultations whether with a psychiatrist, clinical psychologist or registered counselor in the private sector can be very expensive. This is a good move by the government to elevate and integrate the importance of mental healthcare into mainstream healthcare.

#mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealth #Bajet2022 #NationalBudget2022In the recent 2022 National Budget conference, it was revealed that RM1,000 tax relief for full medical check-up will be expanded to include mental health examinations and consultations by board registered psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and registered counselors. You can do this by simply providing receipt as evidence when filing for tax relief.

This is exciting news for us and a sign that mental health support is moving forward in Malaysia. Though just a small step, we look forward to more development for mental health in Malaysia!

So make you appointment with us today at: www.thethrive.center/registration.

We've heard some heartbreaking comments lately about mental illness.

Stigma kills, stigma ruins lives, stigma stops people from getting the help and support that they need. Having a mental illness should be discussed on exactly the same terms as having a physical illness like cancer, like a broken leg, like chronic gastric.
In the same way that a physical illness like diabetes needs to be treated with medicine, with lifestyle changes, with environmental changes, with support from many many healthcare professionals, family and loved ones, a mental illness like depression, anxiety, bipolar etc can be treated the same way. The process and the journey is hard but there is hope at the end of the tunnel.

Do not ever think you are less or you are broken because you have a mental disorder. There is hope in recovery.
