Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. – World Health Organization
Mental illness does not discriminate; it can happen to anyone regardless of someone’s position or gender. In Malaysia, there have been many advocate groups trying to bring mental health awareness at the workplace to light. Similarly, there are on-going discussions on the need to amend the Occupational Safety and Health 1994 Act to include a provision on Mental Health at the workplace as mental health and psychological wellness are highly essential in ensuring a well functional workplace.
According to RELATE Malaysia (a mental health advocacy group) it is estimated that mental health issues among employees may have cost the country RM14.46 billion, or 1% of Malaysia’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2018.
