Fuel Good: Live Strong Workshop

national cancer society malaysia

It’s no surprise that so many people find stress is their most loyal companion nowadays.

In today’s hustle-bustle society, many people rush from their beds out into their lives and get back home just in time to crash, before doing it all over again the next day. We are often easily carried away by the racing thoughts and stress, which often we don’t even realise it’s eating ourselves piece by piece.

Act before it’s too late! Take care of your mental health to move forward.  You can calm your mind amid chaos and lead a meaningful life.

depressed lady

Depression is one of the most common forms of mental disorders. In 2015, experiencing a major depression is the third most common cause of hospitalization in the United States both for the youth and adults in the age range from 18 to 44. Despite the high prevalence of this mental disorder, it is often understood and dismissed as a trivial matter by many. Little do they know that depression is more dangerous that it is often perceived on.
