#MentalHealthPH, an advocacy organization, aims to make mental health support more accessible to all by providing inspiring and educating stories and resources.
Founded in 2016, it has reached more than 120,000 collective followers in its campaigns and advocacy. It has invested in raising awareness of the struggles of people with mental illness, in the ability of members to support themselves and others, and in partnering with various sectors towards sustainable solutions.
The group has just released two free self-care kits on its website. Volume 1 is called “A Seed of Courage” and Volume 2 is called “A Garden of Compassion”.
Recognizing the impact and setbacks brought by the pandemic on the individual and the community, #MentalHealthPH invites everyone to revisit the concept of rest and self-care as a means to productivity rather than a sign of weakness; to #CultivateCourage and build a culture of a more positive disposition towards self-care, self-check-in and help-seeking behavior.
