Seeking Help 

Social Security Administration for Health or Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Sosial Kesehatan (BPJS) is Indonesia’s national health insurance scheme. They cover multiple health conditions which also includes mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar and schizophrenia. However, it does not necessarily cover the cost for psychologists, and depending on your diagnosis and needs, it may not cover the entire cost of your care. 

Where to start?

If you are a student, find out whether you have a counsellor provided. Usually universities and/or high schools would have a wellbeing advisor with a psychology background that may help in pointing you in the right direction.

Another way is that you can talk to someone you trust. Whether it is a parent, a friend, a sibling or even a teacher. This way, you are able to work together to find help and also build a support system that you need.

You are able to approach your doctor/general practitioner to talk about how you have been feeling lately. They will be able to work together with you to create an action plan on facing your mental health journey. They will be able to point you to the right help that you need, be it psychologists, psychiatrist and/or support groups.

*If you are in any immediate danger, please call 119 or visit an emergency centre directly.
