Club HEAL

It's been a few months since my last entry. No, I haven't been lazy, just overwhelmed with many new adventures. Among them is Club HEAL.

Together with Dr Radiah and friends, we founded Club HEAL (Hope, Empowerment, Acceptance & Love), a non-profitable society that aims to assist and empower persons with mental illness to regain confidence in themselves and others in their journey towards community reintegration.

We had orientation tea, organised fund-raising bazaar, training for volunteers and next Monday will be the opening of Club HEAL day care rehab service at Al-Khair Mosque. And there's also an upcoming public forum "Genie or Genes? Differentiating Mental Illness from Being Possessed".

And we've just started ...
