(Hear Me Find Me)

The awareness of mental illness in Indonesia is still low. There are many factors that cause the low awareness of mental health. One of it is the bad stigma in the eye of society. The effect of those situation is people who suffer mental disorder prefer to stay silent and not seeking help. Muhammadiyah Medical Student Activities (MMSA) as medical organization will take an action to contribute in changing the bad stigma of mental health disease and increase the awareness of mental health.

In celebration World Mental Health Day in October, 10th 2021, Public Health Committee or PHCO of MMSA UMY, hold an event called Hear Me Find Me, simplified as HEARD. In this year, we chose “Depression and Anxiety” as the topic. In this event there are two interventions. The first intervention was a training with Desi Wahyu Susilowati, S.Psi., M.Psi., a psychologist of Pijar Psikologi. This training held in October 10th 2021 with student of SMA Muhammadiyah 1 Yogyakarta as the participant. The second intervention held in October 17th 2021. It was a talk show with Adiska Uswa Aisa, S.Psi , a psychologist of Into The Light Indonesia. This talk show was participated by SMA Muhammadiyah 1 Yogyakarta and 1st year medical students from several universities also, streamed online with 20 views.

Beside those two intervention PHCO MMSA UMY also hold a campaign and two activities, online consultation and podcast. The online consultation conducted in 7 days and had 20 participants with two psychologists. The podcast hosted by Hani Fakhrunnisa and will be held in the last week of October 2021.
