By leveraging their expertise in media industry and global distribution network, we hope our message will reach a global audience. In a world where one out of 5 children suffers from a mental health problem that is often not addressed, spreading knowledge and helping to combat stigma is invaluable.” Said Prof. Daniel Fung, the IACAPAP President.
“As the global newswire partner to IACAPAP, Media OutReach Newswire plays an integral role in helping the organisation to spread awareness about the importance of prevention, promotion, and intervention of mental health issues in children and young people around the world. We hope by becoming the voice of the organisation, the society will come to the realisation that mental health issues in children and young people should not be stigmatized and that there are effective interventions for youth with mental health problems. Furthermore, IACAPAP’s website has useful resources on topics related to children and young people’s mental health issues that anyone, including parents, children, young people, or even members of the media, can access for free. We will also be distributing thought leadership articles from the IACAPAP every quarter on pertinent public youth mental health issues. We hope through knowledge sharing and imparting positive messages, we can collectively make a positive difference in people’s lives. Knowledge changes perception and shapes opinion.” Said Ms. Jennifer Kok, the Founder & CEO of Media OutReach.”
Media OutReach has been supporting numerous local and international non-profit organisations which focus on social and mental wellbeing of children and young people. “We help on the premise that every child matters, regardless where they live and what skin color they are, no child or adolescent should be neglected. They are the future of the world, and this our vision aligns with that of IACAPAP’s. We are very certain that this partnership will bring a positive impact to the society and help to change people’s attitudes towards mental health issue. More importantly, we want parents and society to regard seeking mental health advice as just the same as going to your general practitioners.” She continued.
