Parang si Maine lang! Antipolo Rep. Chiqui Roa Puno concerned about mental health

Oct 11, 2017 @ 11:12

Antipolo Rep. Chiqui Roa Puno wants people to know that there is no shame in having depression or other mental health conditions, and is seeking to make sure that those with these conditions get the proper help.

Roa-Puno recently sponsored the Comprehensive Mental Health Act, which was approved on second reading on OCtober 10, World Mental Health Day, according to a post on her Facebook page.

Those with mental health problems don’t need to be silent and let their condition go untreated, the politiko said.

“[ADMIN] Malapit ng maging ganap na batas ang panukala na House Bill 6452 o Ang Comprehensive Mental Act na pumasa sa second reading kanina sa Kamara!
Naging mas makabuluhan ang ang pagpapatibay ng House Bill 6452 sa 2nd reading dahil nataon ito sa World Mental Health Day na pinagdiriwang tuwing Oktubre 10 kasabay ang Depression Awareness Month.
Ayon kay Rep Chiqui Roa-Puno, na siyang nagsponsor sa nasabing panukala, ang mga Pilipinong may kapansanan sa pagiisip ay hindi na mananahimik at magtitiis na lamang sa kanilang kalagayan.
‘Wala nang kailangang makaramdam na sila ay nag-iisa o wala ng pag-asa sa kanilang suliraning pang mental na kalusugan. Makakatulong ang batas na ito para burahin ang kahihiyang kaakibat ng pagkakaroon ng mental health condition. Makatutulong din ang batas para maging malawak ang ating kaalaman tungkol sa ganitong klaseng problema’ – Cong. Chiqui Roa- Puno
