Mentari di Rumah Anda
Mentari Selayang, Selangor
Description of Project
Our primary objective establishing this project is to reduce gaps between public and mental health practitioner thus creating more awareness relating to the importance of mental health and reducing stigma to get early assessment and treatment if necessary.
Virtual conference has been a norm since pandemic started and due to this, we decided to create routine online public webinar using Zoom Meeting platform and Facebook Live platform. The project is called “MENTARI Di Rumah Anda”.
This program is a tailored outreach program designed specifically for general public who have access to internet connectivity and social media account as our primary audience. Based on platform used, we expected most of our participants will be teenager and young adult aged between 18-35 years old.
Webinar was promoted in our official Facebook account and our official Instagram account. Staffs from Jabatan Psikiatri & Kesihatan Mental Hospital Selayang also was encourage to promote the webinar on their on platform. Poster as prepared prior to the webinar.
Apart from simple straightforward presentation, we felt live interaction with public audience is a strong reason why this project received well by the public.
Online Public Webinar can be one of the method to reach out to public and if we do it routinely, it can help bring awareness on mental health wellbeing and hopefully can prevent emergence of serious mental illness.
