Tagaytay City Councilor Athena Tolentino is calling on the public to be cautious not only about their physical well-being but also of their mental health amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, Tolentino said a study shows that 6 million Filipinos are currently battling anxiety or depression.
This prompted the Politiko to advocate mental health awareness in Tagaytay City.
She urged her constituents who are experiencing mental health problems to talk to peer counselors in the city through the following contact details:
Globe: 0977-006-9226 | 0977-006-9245
Smart: 0930-763-6069 | 0921-932-9324
“Let’s normalize mental health,” Tolentino said.
“Remember that you are not alone. We hear you and we are here for you.”
