Dr Radiah Salim loves her job as a locum family physician, tending to patients’ physical ailments so they can get better and go about their daily tasks. Her other passion lies in raising awareness about invisible conditions that afflict the brain, particularly mental illness. In 2012, she founded Club Heal, a charity that provides support for those with such issues.
