Mental illness is a disorder that affect cognitive functioning of human being and may cause changes to the individual process of thinking and behaving. People from any generation may get affected including the children. It becoming worst when the affected person started to have suicidal ideation, intention, and attempt. They also tend to do self-harm as the method of coping. The awareness about mental health among the society in Malaysia still need to be improved. Not so many of us have the proper understanding regarding it. The sad truth is the stigma and labeling still exists among the society towards to those who suffering mental illness. However, it is unfair for us to put the blame on the society for being judgmental and stigmatized people who suffered from mental illness. Therefore it is very important for mental health practitioner and educator to take action in creating and inculcating the awareness among the society too so that we can have physically and mentally healthy community.
