Jan 26, 2019 @ 10:02

Quezon Rep. Helen Tan was among those who celebrated the completion of the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of Republic Act 11036 or the Mental Health Act.

Tan joined Health Secretary Francisco Duque III and other government officials at the ceremonial signing of the IRR in Mandaluyong City on January 22.

Tan, a physician, said she considers the IRR an accomplishment as a lawmaker and chairperson of the House Committee on Health.

Under the Mental Health Law, the government is required to provide mental health services down to the barangay level and increase the capacities of mental health professionals.

The law also provides for the promotion of mental health education in schools and workplaces.
