Sehat Jiwa for School

Sehat Jiwa Bahagia (
Private sector

    Since 2018, Sehat Jiwa has been focused on mental health prevention through provision of mental health education and literacy. Since then, we have developed our own wellbeing curriculum for adolescents and young adults in Indonesia. Sehat Jiwa for School is a program implemented by Sehat Jiwa Bahagia since 2018. This program aims to equip students, teachers, and the school system with a set of knowledge and skills to maintain and improve mental health conditions. In 2021, we delivered this program in 10 schools in Indonesia. The Covid-19 pandemic has put student mental health in more vulnerable condition. We believe that psychological flexibility plays a pivotal role to help future Indonesian citizens have mental resilience to face any adversities. Thus in this program, we teach basic knowledge on mental well-being such as, but not limited to, stress management, emotional regulation, and building healthy relationships. During the implementation process, Sehat Jiwa conducted a preliminary surveys in 10 schools in Indonesia. The respondents of this survey are students and teachers from each school. After that, we adjust our wellbeing curriculum based on their need. By 2022, this program reached approximately 7000 students from all over Indonesia. We have delivered our program to SMA 1 Pariangan, SMA Lentera Harapan Ambon, SMA Sukma Bangsa Aceh, SMA 77 Jakarta , SMA 34 Jakarta, MAN 2 Probolinggo, etc. The activity results indicated that 90 % of participants showed increased knowledge and skills of how to maintain their mental health during the pandemic. We also do a follow up session with our beneficiaries from 2 years ago, she reported that after she got our program she became more confident to face her problem and she does not hesitate to reach out when she needs help. 100% of teachers reported that they felt this program helped them to understand the mental health condition of their students and inspire them to be more aware of the psychological condition of their students. Up to now, this program get recognized by Uplink - World Economic Forum on their youth mental health challenge, not just that Sehat Jiwa has been able to engage with more organisation to support this program, such as BNI Indonesia, Unilever Indonesia, IPK DKI Jakarta, local education authorities (Disdik DKI Jakarta), etc. This program is likely to be replicated in other areas or on a wider scale. It would be better if it is supported by cooperation with the central and local government.

    Expected Impact

    Indonesian youths are getting more vulnerable to mental health issues. According to The State of the World’s Children Report published by UNICEF, 29% Indonesian youths are often feeling depressed or having little interest in doing things. Apart from that, the onset age of mental health issues among youths is getting younger, which is 10-19 years old. The current pandemic is also accelerating the issue. Yet, access to mental health professionals are limited to the capital city and the surrounding. Low mental health literacy spreads stigma on mental health and hinder people to get the help that they need. As life challenges get more complex, the youths are not prepared with proper knowledge and a strong support system. Without proper treatment, mental health issues will be the cause of financial burden and disability. Based on WHO prediction, we only have 8 years left to prevent a self-fulfilling prophecy. Thus we believe that mental health education especially for youth is a way to fill in the gap on mental health intervention. This will address SDG goal 3.4 to decrease numbers of deaths from non communicable diseases and also support good quality education. Without proper education on mental health, youth might be more prone to other mental health issues, or even developing a disorder. Without proper treatment, it may affect their productivity, which later prevents them from higher social mobility. Our innovation encourages the beneficiaries to find their true strength, and ignite a belief that being resilient is possible in any situation. Then if they are resilient enough for themselves, they can also spread that to their communities. We cannot solely rely on rehabilitative actions. Indonesian youths need to be empowered to take actions for themselves and also the community.
