According to The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015
According to The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015, 4.2 million of Malaysians age 16 and above are suffering from mental health problems. The survey also reported a steady rise in prevalence of psychiatric morbidity for those in 16 years old of age – 10.6% (1996), 11.2% (2006), and 29.2% (2015). In recent years, there is a rapid increase in reported cases of youth depression and suicides. This is the proof that a serious measure need to be taken into consideration in order to address mental health issues among children and adolescence.
I believe that current lifestyle, environmental factors and social media influence are the greatest factors that leads to mental disorder among children and adolescence.
