GOMBAK, 10 October 2020: In conjunction with World Mental Health Day that is observed on 10 October every year, IIUM’s Secretariat of Psychology Students (PSYCSTA) is honouring the day with an awareness video campaign.
This year’s theme for the observance is “Mental Health for All, Greater Investment – Greater Access.” A matter that is suiting to the year 2020’s unprecedented events, an occurrence that has affected us all.
The society’s objectives of the event are to increase awareness on mental health, contribute to World Mental Health Day 2020 commemoration, educate people regarding Islamic view of mental well-being for Muslims and to eliminate the stigma on mental health.
With those objectives in mind, the society will post their World Mental Health Day 2020 awareness video campaign on their Instagram account @psycstaiium at 10 a.m on Saturday (10 October). The video will show highlighted parts in their interview with Dr. Jamilah and Dr. Inarah.
The society is targeting 1,000 views for their highlight reel video. After that achievement, they will publish the full interview on their World Mental Health Week account @wmhw20.
All videos are available on their Facebook accordingly.***
