BMC-UBD COMMUNITY PROJECT "TAKE A BREAK" (PART II)
We would like to thank everyone who came to the second part of our collaboration with Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) staffs and students last Sunday in raising awareness on the importance of looking after one’s mental health at the Bandarku Ceria in the capital.
Leading BMC volunteers in the second Bandarku Ceria event was our Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Abdul Mu'izz bin Dato Paduka Haji Alikhan.
The team had the pleasure to immerse in a conversation with Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Md Isham bin Haji Jaafar, Minister of Health. They had a series of activities and talks that focused on promoting mental health and wellbeing in Brunei Darussalam.
The community project was created as a way to educate the public about mental health, the triggers and to reduce the stigma associated with it.
We hope that through this awareness, everyone will be more mindful of their overall health to detect symptoms and seek professional help when necessary, and most importantly, break the mental health stigma that leaves so many people suffering in secret.
We are proud to collaborate with UBD to promote mental health awareness as a way to help people with mental illnesses understand that they are not alone in their struggles and getting help can make all the difference.
