Mentari Ketereh, Kelantan
Description of Project
MENTARI Ketereh Kelantan is one of the MENTARI services available in Malaysia situated within the vicinity of Klinik Kesihatan Ketereh of Kota Bharu district. It has been gazzetted as MENTARI on 6th January 2013. It provides services to promote mental health awareness and mental health care in the community.
There are many programs conducted to help patients in their road to recovery. All the programs are aimed at improving their social skills, increased their level of confidence and to expose them with activities that are potential to generate income for them to be independent in the future.
One of our projects is the cultivation of oyster mushroom started since 2014. The initial fund was obtained from MENTARI Kelantan club and we also received donations from YANAZ foundation. We started with 3000 mushroom cobs and sold freshly picked mushroom to seller at farmer’s market and to staffs and clients at KK Ketereh. We also made mushroom-filled spring rolls for sale. We hope to expand this project and are looking forward for our new project fertigation.
MENTARI is a new approach initiated by the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) to improve outreach and re-integration of people with mental health problems into the community.
