We are a team of clinical psychologists offering support to MOH frontline personnel, who are at risk not just for infection but also mental health problems during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are raising funds to subsidise our usual rates, so that MOH frontliners pay a reduced rate of RM75 (usually RM150) for an online counselling session from 23rd March until 31st March 2020.
We know how important it is to maintain staff mental health during this pandemic. The latest research reports that health professionals, especially those working in hospitals caring for people with confirmed or suspected 2019-nCoV pneumonia, are vulnerable to both high risk of infection and mental health problems (such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, fear and frustration).
In addition, many medical staff do not have the time or resources for self-care. Online counselling is a convenient and cost-effective way for them to obtain much-needed mental healthcare.
We need your help to make this come true. The more money we raise, the more subsidised counselling sessions we can offer our healthcare professionals.
