World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. In line with this, ALL ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH PHILIPPINES decided to propose this project in celebration of the World Mental Health Day from October 9-10, 7:00 PM-9:00 PM, and October 11, 7:00 PM-10:00 PM.
The Kumusta Ka Kabataan: Online Mental Health Awareness Forum is a three-day advocacy-based event which promotes mental health awareness for the youth. The forum shall have three speakers and three topics, of which each speaker will discuss a topic that is anchored to mental health issues.
A one-hour fundraising concert entitled “MUSIKAISIPAN: Giving Light Amidst the Pandemic VIRTUAL CONCERT” shall commence on the third and last day of the event which aims to share and amplify inspirational ideas of the said agenda, and to stop the social stigma about mental health.
The online forum shall use the Zoom Teleconferencing App and Facebook for its live streaming. After every session, participants will go through breakout rooms entitled “KUMUSTAMBAYAN SESSION”. They will be given the opportunity to talk to other participants or “buddies”, where they can express their feelings and sentiments.
All About Mental Health Philippines is a non-profit organization which aims to promote awareness about mental health and break its stigma among the Filipino youth.
