Shanaya Dizon started this petition to national center for mental health

Good day everyone, I Shanaya Dizon wants to make a change about the mental health stigma. Everyone must take mental health important as our physical health, it shouldn't be something we must laugh about or take it aside. We must fight together in battling the stigma about mental illnesses.

This is the call to every individual, and I'm appealing to everyone not to put a stigma on this because what we need is to help each other to resolve the mental health problem.

However, the cost of counseling and treatment is not the only factor that sets back most Filipinos from going to doctors to get a professional opinion. Filipino culture encourages coping through social means. Even our language is devoid of nuances for various mental health conditions. And while such coping mechanisms cannot be discounted or done away with, there are instances or cases that require formal treatment depending on the condition. Self-diagnosis can also only worsen one’s condition.

So here I am calling you guys to help our fellow filipinos overcome what they are encountering. The donated funds will be donated to the National Center for Mental Health (NCMH) in help to those people who are encountering mental health problems.

You can also give these hotlines:

Crisis Hotlines – 0917 899 8727 (USAP) and (02) 7-989-8727 (USAP)

Thank you and God bless us everyone!
