How The Floods Have Affected Mental Health

Klang Valley was once again hit by flash floods earlier this week. This incident, coupled with the flash floods last month and December last year, has led to increasing calls for mental health support for flood victims. First, we explore the mental health effects of living through a flood, and what needs to be addressed. Then, we get into what it would take for the government to offer more free mental health services around the country.
