The 2023 NCMW Conference, hosted by the National Council of Mental Wellbeing, is a one-day event showcasing different approaches to mental health from a variety of perspectives. This year, the conference brought together panel speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds to speak on the theme of “Preserving Mental Health in A Crisis.” Topics included mental illness in correlation with non-communicable diseases, gamification for learning about mental health, and sociological issues in Malaysia.
The event provided a unique opportunity for attendees to network and engage with each other, as well as to learn from the speakers. Attendees had the chance to explore the many booths representing mental health wellness, yoga, meditation, and other related causes. Through the conversations and activities taking place throughout the day, attendees were able to gain a better understanding of the issues being discussed and the ways in which they can be addressed.
For our members of Mind Matters Network, Shansa, Shareena and Adlin, the conference was an invaluable opportunity to learn more about mental health and to meet passionate, open-minded people. They were able to explore different perspectives and gain a better understanding of the issues presented at the conference.

During the event I connected with new people who were very kind and polite, the best part was networking with them. I hope to work with these organisations in the future, especially Mind Matters Network!”
The NCMW Conference is an important event for all those involved in promoting mental health, and provides a space for attendees to learn, network, and engage with each other. We hope that there will be more events like this in the future, as it is a great opportunity for attendees to come together and learn about mental health in an open and welcoming environment.
