Mental Health PH website soft-launching by the MH PH volunteers


Last October 15, 2015, the Mental Health PH Volunteers headed by Mr. Roy Dahildahil, Mr. Aldren Bautista Gonzales, Julianne Kristine Jamandre Cosning and the rest of the website team launches the Mental Health PH website.

#MentalHealthPH is a campaign that aims to create a safe community of people, and friends of people with mental health problems. The volunteers are from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao who gathered through social media to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma about Mental Health. #MentalHealth PH envisions an inclusive and empowered community for people affected by mental health problems.

This is one of the health advocacy projects that emerged during he 2nd Philippine Healthcare and Social Media Summit held last April 21, 2016 at the Philippine International Convention Center, Pasay City which was organized by healthxph.

The site caters various information regarding different disorders in Mental Health, what to dos and stories of people who suffers from a MH condition. It also promotes the HOPE HOTLINE 24/7 for suicide prevention and those who are in emotional crisis.


Though the website is still on its way to improvement, the MH PH volunteers are inviting more Filipino people to get involved in fighting the stigma and raise Mental Health awareness in the country.

  1. I also read one article about this Mental Health and it talks about some mental illness awareness. Those that have mental problems is actually really serious and should be addressed properly with respect.

  3. Ah. Seems like I've made the right choice to post something about Mental Health,too. Social media can really help making people aware that it's as much of a concern like viral infections and the likes.

  5. As much as I support the campaign towards spreading awareness regarding mental health issues, I unfortunately cannot afford the time to become a volunteer. For the meantime, I just took a look around their site and have liked their Facebook page to share their posts if need be. I really appreciate that measures are being taken to help aid this particular matter.

  7. Wow! This is actually a pretty big and bold step for us Filipinos! We are now more aware of the need to assist people with suicidal thought and ideations. I just wish the photo on the website were Filipinos so that it will truly feel like a Filipino website. Just a thought. I will support #MentalHealthPH!

  9. This is such a great initiative! People should be aware of mental health because it may seem like a personality issue from the surface, but there are already problems existing.

    Thanks for making us aware of this!

  10. It is a nice project and I hope that they will reach their objective as soon as possible. Mental health is still taboo to some Filipinos. It is good that someone thought about this advocacy.

  12. This is such a great cause. People really need to have someone to talk to whether what they are going through mentally and emotionally is a something that can be called clinically ill. Prevention is better than cure, after all.

  17. It is really great to know that people are now realizing that mental health is more than the crazy psychos we see in a mental asylum. It is about people who may be struggling like depression or anorexia. They can't help it and I'm glad there is now a website than can.

  18. This is one great advocacy. I believe that mental health is essential and the stigma that affects people with mental health condition should be prevented. Mental illness is a serious problem and this project is definitely helpful in spreading awareness.

  20. Do you realize what is behind such a "grown up," "mature" decision? Your deadly seriousness (taking yourself too seriously) encourages the attitude that a mature adult should not let herself be so optimistic and thus mental health is jeopardized.guarantor
