REFERRALS FOR BROS
MENTAL HEALTH AND CRISIS SUPPORT
No male-specific mental health services available.
(Note: Unfortunately, there is extremely limited mental health support services in Brunei. There is no involvement of non-governmental organisations in the provision of mental health care. There are organisations for children with autistic spectrum disorder, and learning disabilities, but none for other mental disorders. There are no private day-care or rehabilitation facilities, no crisis telephone counselling, no mental health user, carer or professional associations. Perhaps due to stigma, users and family members are reluctant to acknowledge the presence of mental disorders. The community rehabilitation services have been active in encouraging users and carers to meet, socialise and support each other through psycho-education groups and other activities. If you are in an emergency, please contact 991 and ask for the nearest hospital emergency department.)
