Mental health is taken lightly in the Philippines. According to the National Statistics Office that mental illnesses are the third most common form of morbidity for Filipinos. This petition aims to abolish traditional thinking wherein mental disorders such as depression are merely moods that can easily be cured with a simple "cheer up" or "go buy yourself some food, you're just hungry".
By increasing the awareness towards mental health, our country will be able to develop more productive citizens due to the fact that people will be healthy in all aspects.
The petition will benefit the entire society, particularly those who are not aware that they are suffering the disorders, in a way that their conditions are not something that can be taken lightly, and be provide adequate care and support to whoever will need it.
