Support Groups in KL / Klang

I’ve been asked about support groups quite a few times and been thinking how I can start this. It’s definitely something very common in western countries, I’m not sure how it will work here in Malaysia. Now I’m proposing the idea here, and for anyone who reads this and is interested in any of the support groups, please get in touch, let me know what you think and how we can start this and get it going!

Support groups for:

  1. Depression or mood related problems
  2. OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  3. Anxiety or stress related problems
  4. Schizophrenia and psychotic related disorders
  5. Carers (immediate family etc)

What is it? How does it go? What do we do?

  1. Meet monthly or every fortnightly for an hour or so
  2. Getting to know people who share the same or similar problems
  3. Casual discussion following a theme that we set (led by me)
  4. Sharing, supporting and learning among/from each other

Languages:

  1. English
  2. Mandarin / Cantonese

Venues:

  1. Klinik Pakar Au Yong, Jln Pudu, KL
  2. Manipal Hospitals Klang
  3. Some cafes in Klang Valley?

Requirements:

  1. Patient’s willingness! (is not forced by others to join us; willingly attend, participate, share and listen to others)
  2. At least 3 to form a group
  3. To treat others with respect and maintain confidentiality
  4. To share the cost of a small administrations/materials/venue fees (if any)
  5. It’s mainly for people who are undergoing treatment (medical/psychological/other) and need some support along the way, NOT a platform to vent your emotional problems and personal frustrations. 

These are just some ideas for now, if you have some ideas or are interested, please do leave your contacts (email or contact numbers) below or get in touch by emailing hello@huibee.com or calling/whatsapp 017-2757813

    1. Hey Fatin! Good to hear from you, which area are you in? I’ve also sent you an email. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    1. Hey Kenneth, thank you for reaching out.

      I haven’t been able to form one for immediate family/carer/supporters. Where do you base in? You can perhaps bring your partner for a depression support group and then we will see if we are able to form a support group for supporters from there.

      For the time being, if you are interested, please let me know where do you base and languages you can speak comfortably in, I shall put you in the list.

      Also, you may check out the Malaysian Mental Health Association website here They run regular courses and events for supporters.

      Hope this helps!
      I’ve also sent you an email. :)

I would like to connect with you to find out more about the services you offer and also I may be able to refer you some of our clients that may be in need of a support group in the future if it is relevant. Thank you.

    1. Hey CT, what kind of support group are you looking for? I will be dropping you an email, need more information from you.

      To the rest who are interested, please drop a comment/whatsapp/email to let me know (1) which support group you’d like to join, (2) your location or where you can comfortably travel to, (3) what language do you speak. Also, let me know whether you are undergoing any treatments.

      1. Huibee.. I belief i have depression and i’m comfortable with klang/shah alam/subang and puchong.. im not taking any medication nor getting any other form of treatment/relief/support. I prefer english if possible, else mandarin/cantonese/bahasa malaysia is alright too.
