Join SAPOT in changing the mental health landscape in Malaysia through empowering mental health survivors and digitalising psychological tools.


3 in 10 adults aged 16 years and above in Malaysia suffer from some form of mental health issues*

Yet, they hesitate to reach out for help.

A big portion of Malaysians who are facing high emotional distress are often unsure if they should opt for clinical intervention to deal with their daily struggles. Many feel like their problems are not severe enough to seek professional help and would avoid or delay seeking treatment.

Additionally, due to stigma and the fear of being perceived as “weak”, “crazy” or having low faith in God, seeking professional help is also stalled. People may sometimes even be hesitant to confide in their loved ones because they feel like they are burdening them, causing many to withdraw and isolate. SAPOT aims to break this stigma, allowing people to start reaching out for help before things get worse.

 

This is where SAPOT steps in.

SAPOT is a self care and social support platform built for those pushing through day-to-day challenges. Our goal is to prevent people from developing mental disorders due to prolonged stress and encourage professional help-seeking behaviour when necessary. Through our platform, you or someone in your circle can seek help from relatable people with relatable stories.

 

 

SAPOT’s solution is to create an all inclusive ecosystem for mental healthcare through the use of SAPOT Warrior, SAPOT Tools, and SAPOT Stories.

We’ve launched our SAPOT Warrior feature in August 2022. SAPOT Warriors are recovered mental health survivors trained to become Malaysia’s pioneer Accredited Peer Supporters. These survivors, who struggle to secure employment and acceptance in society, are given a new chance at life and are able to give back to their community. Our SAPOT Warriors provide one-on-one conversations and draw on their lived experience. Hesitant individuals would now be able to obtain support in a more informal yet evidence-based setting, rather than the traditionally clinical setting that may be intimidating. 

 

This year, we aim to further enhance our solution by developing and releasing our SAPOT Tools and SAPOT Stories. 

SAPOT Tools are digitised therapy worksheets, techniques, and assessments that you can access wherever, whenever. Through these self help tools, we provide practical exercises to help manage your thoughts and emotions. SAPOT Tools allow users to assess their mental health state, learn proper self care methods, and track their wellbeing progress. As of right now, this feature is currently in the works as we envision it to be part of our upcoming application.

Our SAPOT Stories are designed so that you can read and share your life stories. We believe that through this feature, one’s story may inspire another and make them feel that they are not alone. We’ve incorporated an expert’s reply for this feature in which relevant experts will respond with their views on how to best manage the situation depending on the topic. Responses stay anonymous so that people feel more comfortable to be transparent and type their hearts out.


 

 

 

You make it possible. 

Because of you, we’re slowly realising our dream to help and empower young adults into becoming the best versions of themselves. More people are able to receive the support they need, when they need it. Not only that, we’ve managed to accumulate and empower 18 mental health survivors within our first few months as a company. While we are pleased with our impact and aim to scale it even more, as we know that there are thousands of others that would benefit from what we’re doing. That’s the power of your donation: you’re helping us reach more people and touch more lives together. 

Your support will help fund our day-to-day operations, including our application and content development. We would also be able to allocate more funds into further enhancing our SAPOT Warrior system and streamlining the experience for both our users and peer supporters. We are very excited and can’t wait to bring SAPOT to reality, so that we can help more of those in need. 

For every donation, you’ll receive a certain level of perks as a small token of gratitude for your help. 

Donate and join SAPOT in changing the mental health landscape in Malaysia.
