In conjunction with UN WHO World Mental Health Day 2013, the Department of Health organized the Penang State level World Mental Health Day 2013 at the Taman Sri Nibong field. This whole event was funded by the Federal Ministry of Health. The COMBI team of Taman Sri Nibong Residents’ Association had been invited to jointly organize this event.
This event was for everyone – the theme was focused on positive mental health for senior citizens, but the events targetted a healthy lifestyle for all. Moreover, many of us still have parents and even grandparents who will benefit from these activities.*
