Mind Matters: But Does Mental Health Matter in GE15 Manifestos?

There’s no denying that we need to do more about mental health, but are our policies and politicians doing and talking enough about it? With GE15 looming, we take a look at whether mental health is mentioned at all in political parties’ manifestos, and what the next government must do to improve the landscape of mental health in Malaysia, with Hasbeemasputra and Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin.
