Several health exhibits were showcased during the Tutong Town Healthy Mukim Programme to facilitate the public in finding out and further understanding the importance of health.
At the Lobby of Petani Mall in Tutong, the ‘Mind Ur Mind’ programme exhibition is one of the platforms of the awareness campaign on the importance of Mental Health. The programme themed Attentive Family and Community: Catalyst of Change, is hoped to increase the public and community’s sensitivity to the importance of mental health aside from overcoming and reducing negative views on mental health issues in the country. The programme also provides an open platform for the public to gain the correct and safe mental health attention, assistance and care.
Meanwhile, at the Tutong Civic Centre Complex, a traditional cakes cooking demonstration from the Tutong Sebior Citizens Activity Centre was held as well as a health check and exhibition. The programme acts as a catalyst towards encouraging the mukim’s residents to carry out health checks especially for those with a high risk of non-communicable diseases and making it as a healthy life style practice.
