Psychiatry Series: Call Befrienders For Free

From today, you can call Befrienders KL for free whenever you need emotional support. The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has joined forces with eight telcos to waive call charges to the Befrienders’ helpline. We look at how Befrienders’ services help people with mental and emotional issues, what challenges they face in providing this free service, and what’s next on the national agenda to strengthen mental health services.

If you need emotional support, you can call Befrienders at 03-79568145/8144 or email sam@befrienders.org.my
