Taking care of your mental wellbeing during COVID-19
In the Philippines young people, and Filipinos in general, have difficulty communicating their feelings or what’s bothering them and seeking help. There are barriers in self, society, and systems and , however digital technology penetration in the Philippines is high at 70% so Roy Dahildahil and #MentalHealthPH use social media and other digital technologies to improve access to information especially on how and where to seek help for mental health concerns; showcase what can be done; and advocate for system change. Its work now extends offline with established chapters in two big cities which create their own campaigns tailored to their own needs.
Join us for a panel with Roy Dahildahil from #MentalHealthPH about how we can use digital technologies and social media to improve mental wellbeing.
This is the first in a series of exciting NCDA hosted live streams this year around our 2021 theme of meaningful engagement of the NCD community and of community participation – which will run throughout the year.
