If someone has a mental health problem, then most probably, they will experience emotional disturbances, moods, and the ability to think which causes bad actions. Mental health can also affect one’s physical health, so awareness about mental health, especially in adolescents, needs to be improved. Many people think that healthy person is the one who is never physically ill. But, we have to know that health can be seen from two aspects, namely physical and mental. There is a saying “Mens Sana In Corpore Sano” which means there is a strong mind in a healthy body. Mental health is someone’s condition in which related to active self adaptation to confront and resolve problems with full self-control.
Teenagers, especially pre and mid adolescents tend to have a mental instability because they are in their transition process to find their true identity. Teenagers who study at school are also prone to be exposed to stress due to the pressure they get from school or home. Therefore, in improving the quality of adolescent mental health, an intervention based on collaboration among health workers is needed.

To support CIMSA PROGRAM on Non-Communicable Disease (Mental Health) and Human Resource for Health (Health Collaboration), SCOME CIMSA FK UNS collaborated with HIMAPSI FK UNS to held INSIGHT (Interprofessional Collaboration in Preserving Mental Health) which is a series of activities to celebrate the Day of the Day National Health Collaboration on October 12. This activity raised the theme of mental health which includes the realm of psychology and medical students.
This activity began with training for SCOME and HIMAPSI members on IPE and IPC by Mrs. Fadjri Kirana and Dr. Dian Nugraha on September 16, 2019. In the training, it was explained how to conduct IPC as well as a group discussion regarding the experience of IPC from some random participants. After learning about how to do a good IPC, IPC interventions were carried out. The intervention was conducted at SMAN 1 Surakarta on September 25th 2019, and began with a seminar on general mental health by Ms. Afia. At the peak of the event, namely intervention, HIMAPSI and SCOME divided students into classes and conducted interactive counseling about mental health from a medical and psychological standpoint. In the counseling, they also informed about websites and numbers that students can contact if they need consultations about the problems they are experiencing, so that their mental health is maintained.
After getting an intervention, students are expected to have a new perspective on mental health, realize the urgency of mental health, and care for one’s own mental health. Whereas HIMAPSI members and SCOME members become more aware of good IPC ways so that later they can work together in realizing public health, especially in the field of mental health.
