KOTA KINABALU: Couples with marriage problems should seek help or counselling from registered counsellors, said Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Azizah Mohd Dun.
She said that couples who faced marriage or other family-related problems could make use of any of the 5,082 directories of registered counsellors nationwide.
The ministry, through the Malaysia Counsellors Board, had provided the directories of counsellors to help the affected people, she said after opening a family programme here yesterday.
She advised couples to seek counselling early if they face difficulties so that their problem would not worsen. The community, she said, should also play its part and not view those who seek counselling negatively.
She said counselling could be sought at all the National Population and Family Development Board offices and clinics in the country.
