E. Questions 26 - 31 are based on the following passage.

The Malaysian Mental Health Association (MMHA) was formed by a group of mental health professionals and community leaders from the then Universiti Hospital, now known as University Malaya Medical Centre. The association is a non-profit voluntary organisation which is managed by an elected committee of interested persons and professionals in the community.

Formed in 1967, MMHA has been providing a number of services to help the mentally ill cope with their problems and lead a normal life. The association offers, among others, the Illness Management Recovery (IMR) programme.

According to the association’s president, this programme, which started in December 2007, is a psycho-social education programme following a semi-structured programme aimed at helping clients to understand their mental condition and teach them methods to cope with distressing symptoms such as stress.

She said that clients will learn how to communicate and verbalise their problems, to be compliant with their medications, to recognise and report relapsing symptoms and to set goals for socialising and returning to work.

She further adds that the programme also aims to restore them to a socially functional state so that they can return to work or their daily lives. This approach, she says, has been very successful in the United States, especially in the east coast states, Scandinavian countries, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. Currently, the association has 18 clients under this programme and a few have returned to work since participating in the programme six months ago.

The association started operations in a rented premise but since 2000 they have acquired a single-storey bungalow in PJ Old Town. The centre has three full-time rehabilitation officers who assist and support clients in their recovery.

Due to public perception about mental illness, she advises the public not to make fun of mental patients. She further adds that with proper treatment, medication and care, the mentally ill can be like other people.

Most of the clients at the center suffer from schizophrenia but there are some who suffer from depression and obsessive-compulsive disorders. When they first joined the association, these clients lacked the understanding about their illness, were not able to work or find a job. Some of the problems they faced were due to lack of education and skills which were partly contributed by their illness. Therefore under the IMP programme, the association works with the clients to 30 tackle their problems so that they can cope better with their illness.

According to the president, the association also provides day-care programmes where a trained occupational therapist visits the centre twice a week to work with several groups namely the Family Education Programme, Depression Support Programme, Public Education Programme and Mental Health Campaigns.

Currently, the association has clients mainly from the younger age group; late teens and those in their 20s and 30s. The centre also has a capacity for about 30 people.

Section D
31 Read the poem below and answer the questions that follow.

What Has Happened to Lulu?

What has happened to Lulu, mother?
What has happened to Lu?
There’s nothing in her bed but an old rag-doll
And by its side a shoe.

Why is her window wide, mother,
The curtain flapping free,
And only a circle on the dusty shelf
Where her money-box used to be?

Why do you turn your head, mother,
And why do the tear-drops fall?
And why do you crumple that note on the fire
And say it is nothing at all?

I woke to voices late last night,
I heard an engine roar.
Why do you tell me the things I heard
Were a dream and nothing more?

I heard somebody cry, mother,
In anger or in pain,
But now I ask you why, mother,
You say it was a gust of rain.

Why do you wander about as though
You don’t know what to do?
What has happened to Lulu, mother?
What has happened to Lu?
