Abstract

NST letter We can be kind in so many ways. Oct 14, 2020 LETTERS: This month sees the world celebrating the Mental Health Awareness Month with the theme, Mental Health for All. It is also the national month of counselling in Malaysia, in conjunction with World Mental Health Day which fell on Oct 10.In 2015, the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry achieved a milestone when it announced these during a conference organised by Persatuan Kaunseling Malaysia (PERKAMA International) to bring counselling to the community. In response to the current situation, PERKAMA International takes the spirit of this year's World Mental Health Day to instil the value of helping others by choosing "Kindness to All" as the thematic words of wisdom to the community. A mentally healthy person will always strive to have a meaningful life without denying its challenges by using his or her existing abilities to cope with unexpected events. It means that taking care of oneself by practising self-care must be made a priority. Humans have the ability and resources to face life's challenges. However, there are times when we may get overwhelmed due to a traumatic event or perhaps because we are not prepared for it. https://www.nst.com.my/opinion/letters/2020/10/632070/we-can-be-kind-so-many-ways
