#HelpIsHere Says BS Psychology Students of AdZU

It has been more than a month since President Rodrigo Duterte signed the National Mental Health Bill into law, and the fourth year BS Psychology students of Ateneo de Zamboanga University are on a mission to spread awareness of this good news. Last August 1, 2018, this group of students organized a talk on this new law on at the Gallery of the Peninsula and the Archipelago at Salvador Campus.

In the morning session, Atty Arnold Cabalida Bucoy discussed about the legal aspect of RA11036: National Mental Health Law. Shedding light on this landmark law, he relayed its significance to the mental welfare of Filipinos and the benefits that Filipino citizens could now get because of this law. In the afternoon session, Dr. Lolina N. Bajin, RPsy,RPm of Camp Navarro General Hospital in Western Mindanao the talked about the psychological aspect of NMH. She reinforced the role of mental welfare to one’s physical health and shared to the audience how one could identify if a person is suffering from a bad mental condition.

Although the students organized this seminar in partial fulfillment of their Current Issues in Psychology subject, it is their hope that through this they had at least served the people in being agents of change in the community.
