As there is only 1 psychologist and 1 psychiatrist per 100,000 Malaysians, now imagine that for every time you get into an accident, you will only get help after 50,000 accidents.
Simply put, we don’t have enough people to provide help for you.

You might need help with changing the tyre, getting the car towed, making a report. Think about how helpful it is to have others around help you through that process.

1% are mental health professionals.
We need a better solution. Join us in our mission to improve mental health in Malaysia.
