Prince William, Lady Gaga and Cara Delevingne are just some of the big names speaking up on mental health. They aim to de-stigmatise the oft misunderstood health condition, and spur silent sufferers to speak out and seek help. They have also inspired more passionate individuals and organisations to come forward and support the cause. In conjunction with World Mental Health Day on Oct 10, we take a closer look at the Malaysian influencers, organisations and platforms that have lent their support and knowledge about mental health.
