Historic! Philippine Mental Health Bill Passes on Senate

Today is a historic day for our country.

On Tuesday, the Philippine Mental Health Bill has officially been passed in the Senate. This is the farthest a policy on mental health has gone after years of lobbying.

Let us all celebrate for this momentous accomplishment our country has reached! All out for a mental health policy in the country!

Senator Pia Hontiveros shared about this momentous event on Facebook.

She captioned it with:

Sa lahat ng hindi makatarungang sinabihan ng sira-ulo, lukaret, maluwag ang turnilyo, may sayad, baliw, abnormal, may topak, emo, praning, sinto-sinto at buwang, dahil sa maling pag-unawa sa isyu ng mental health, para po sa inyo itong batas na ito.

No one should suffer silently alone in the dark and solitarily fight this invisible war. #MentalHealthMatters
