The Malaysia Mental Literacy Movement (“MMLM”) is the brainchild of Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik who is also the Chancellor of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). It was officially registered by the Registrar of Societies (“ROS”) under the Societies Act 1966 on 4 July 2006.
The objectives of MMLM are to introduce and promote various techniques and skills pertaining to the improvement of mental literacy among Malaysians. In doing so, MMLM wishes to contribute to the development and upgrading of human capital resources which are necessary to face the challenges of the new millennium owing to the increasing globalised world as envisaged by the Malaysian Government. Among the activities MMLM organises are workshops, seminars, dialogues, competitions and the like to promote the development of mental literacy such as memory skills, thinking skills and creativity among Malaysians. These mental literacy activities provide the opportunity for every level of society, be they a young student or a retiree to learn ways to improve and sharpen their minds. These activities also encourage integration and unity among the community as they can be participated by people from all walks of life. Leveraging on this advantage, it would be a superb platform to propel the nation to greater heights.
