Circle of Care: Project Presentation Gathering

Date: 31 October 2007

Introduction and Objectives

The Circle of Care program begins in year 2003 as part of the Malaysian Contribution Program from the philanthropic funds of Johnson & Johnson. Since its existence, many had benefited from it. Activities that had taken place is parallel with the focus on three main groups:

1. Family Link Program
This focuses in imparting formal education on mental health to patients and
caregivers. The program is self-perpetuating and it helps empower
patients/caregivers in managing with the mental health condition better.

2. Job Placement Activities
This is an intensive patient rehabilitation program where it enclosed strong
partnership from psychiatrists. As mostly patients would loose their normal
functioning skills due to the mental illness, the job placement activities help
patients to regain some basic functioning skills as well as regaining selfconfidence
in the society

3. Mental Health Awareness Campaign
This basically is to create disease awareness among the public and to remove
the stigma against mental illnesses.

Overall, we can summarized the Circle of Care program as follows:

Objectives:

  • Enhance Johnson & Johnsonís image as a caring corporate citizen and living up to our credo values
  • Further increase public awareness of mental diseases
  • Provide an avenue of support for caregivers/families of patients with mental diseases to learn more about the disease and share their experience
  • Be in alignment with the prevention and removal of the stigma or isolation related to mental illnesses
  • To further strengthen our partnership with the Ministry of Health, Malaysian Psychiatric Association and Malaysian Mental Health Association
