Press Release

Announcing “Mental Health Awareness Month” Online Awareness Campaign

Mental Health Association of Sarawak (MHAS), in collaboration with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), is excited to launch our month-long celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month this May with an engaging online campaign. Through bite-sized social media videos (reels) on Instagram and Facebook, we’ll bring valuable insights and information about a variety of mental health issues directly to you. In a world flooded with online content, it can be tough to know what advice to trust. That’s why we’ve enlisted qualified local mental health specialists and advocates to help increase your awareness, with reliable information.

Campaign Highlights

By following the campaign, you will:

  • Discover practical coping strategies
  • Understand the experiences of people living with ADHD, bipolar disorder, and other disorders
  • Discover ways to improve your well-being and resilience
  • Learn about life events that can trigger mental health challenges for families, such as grief, aging, and trauma
  • Find out how to recognize signs that your child may need support
  • Get to know the mental health professionals serving our communities across Sarawak
  • Find out about the support that is available for everyone to access

 

Where to view the campaign

Catch our daily reels on Instagram at @mhasarawak, or view the campaign on Facebook: facebook.com/mhasarawak. Follow the hashtags #mhasarawak and #mham2024.
