Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. Those who have mental health problems will not be able to think rationally and may act out of control. In Malaysia, mental health problems that are often faced by the community include depression, anxiety and stress. The aim of this study is to identify mental health problems among the people in Perlis which is the smallest state in Malaysia.

The findings of this study found that the prevalence of depression, anxiety and stress among the people of Perlis with an income of B40 is highest among women who live in rural areas, do not have a tertiary level of education and are not working.
