The Story

Hello everyone! My name is Valerie.

 

I volunteer as a program coordinator in SOLS Health – a community-based mental health centre that connects individuals and communities to accessible and affordable mental health services with an emphasis on combating the stigma of mental health in Malaysia. I am currently also working as a special needs therapist full-time.

 

Truth be told, I had no idea as to where or what I wanted to be when I first stepped into the journey of adulting called ‘work’. When it came time for me to do my first duty of getting out of the student life and stepping into the world of adulthood, which meant applying for jobs, I just applied where the opportunities were. And when I was offered a job, I accepted it. I didn’t have a clear direction as to where I was headed, and I was very uncertain as to where my passion was. I decided to just expose myself to where opportunities brought me to. 

 

Which led me to SOLS Health. 

 

I was interested in being involved with mental health work, and SOLS Health stood out to me because of their community-based work. I applied to volunteer and the rest they say, is history. It has been five months since I started my journey with SOLS Health, and I can say that though I’m still discovering where my passion lies, I am a little less fuzzy and a little clearer in that journey of discovery. But more than that, I realised that life is not just about me and myself. There are many, many other lives out there in need of a safe and secure livelihood. 

 

Imagine with me for a moment. 

 

How would you feel if you know of someone being physically, emotionally, or mentally attacked and abused by a loved one? Can you imagine the trauma that is etched into their memory and the adverse effects it carries on in their lives? Upon hearing and reading of such lives being troubled and heavy-laden by such an experience, it really hit me hard in the core. I cannot imagine how hard it must be to be abused or hurt by someone close to you. 

 

SOLS Health provides their services to women and children domestic violence survivors through their program called BRAVE (Building Resilience, Acceptance, Valiance, and Empowerment). BRAVE seeks to support women and children survivors in their recovery process by providing a safe space and journeying with them towards rebuilding their lives for the better. 

 

I hope to raise RM5,000 for this campaign, as this would greatly benefit these women and children survivors in the recovery process of rebuilding their lives and helps the BRAVE team to continue their work in supporting these families in the long run. 

 

Thank you for reading up till this point! Just know that any amount small or big goes a long way for these families.

 

Truly appreciate your time and giving. 

 

With heartfelt gratitude, 

Valerie
