Mental Health Issue for ‪TheMindMovement‬

In partnership with SCOPE ASMPH, we launch this Mental Health Issue for‪#‎TheMindMovement‬. We want to give everyone a better view of the Mental Health situation, particularly in the Philippines. Through this book, we hope everyone gains a deeper understanding of the issues and realities surrounding mental health. We also hope this urges the medical community, especially medical students, to be more proactive and involved in this movement to prioritize mental health.
The content covers a wide range of topics including the Philippines' Mental Health Act, the results of the nationwide mental health survey conducted last January, the stigma surrounding mental health, and the deconstruction of various myths about mental health, among many others. Moreover, the book also features creative outputs and written works by medical students from our LMOs.
