Now, the community-based organisation consists of professionals (psychiatrists and psychologists), university students and people who are diagnosed with mental health related problems.

Summary of relevant work
Free Mental Health Consultation Booth
We regularly (per quarter) open a mental health consultation booth in local arts and crafts markets within Jakarta. Volunteering professionals in our booth, psychologists and psychiatrists, are available to do a screening for mood disorders (most common in Indonesia) and to listen to any mental health concerns/questions from individuals who came to our booth. If needed, recommendations for future clinical treatments would be given and elaborated to the individual.
