In conjunction with our Annual Anniversary Fundraiser we are joining forces with CrossFit Lah Athlete Gary to support Relate Malaysia
Mental health is so important because it impacts all of us - whether personally and directly, or through our friends and family. through the Andean Challenge I hope to raise awareness of the work Relate is progressing and raise funds to support two programme deliverables:
1. Tailoring the Relate platform and depression screening tools to the Bahasa Melayu (‘Malay Language’) speaking community. There are limited mental health resources provided in Bahasa Melayu, the national language of Malaysia, which is spoken by over 70% of the population.
2. Develop and roll out a culturally appropriate guided online self-help intervention programme for low to moderate depression/anxiety (modelled on IAPT programme in UK). This will double the capacity of a mental health professional and is a cost effective means of supporting more people in the community.
All support for the organisation, whether financial or word of mouth is valued and appreciated. To give you an indication of how far your financial support can go we have provided a breakdown below:
RM 30 – will help Relate give important mental health information booklets to 20 people.
RM 120 will help Relate give a comprehensive mental health assessment to ensure someone receives the right diagnosis and treatment.
RM 300 will help Relate to support someone with a mild mental health condition through our low intensity treatment program.
RM 2,500 will help Relate to support 10 people with depression through our group therapy program.
RM 20,000 will help Relate develop a depression awareness and screening program in Bahasa Melayu.
RM 100,000 will help Relate develop a guided online self-help intervention programme.
