Relief and Assistance

Project: Healthy Mind – Jose Panganiban

While focusing so much of physical health, LGUs should give adequate attention to mental health especially that there is a lot of challenges in these times.

The project uses the social media platform to offer counseling to those who need it. They simply need to sign-up in order to access the page, and avail of its free counselling services. Interested clients can also reach the duty-counselor through messenger. The Facebook page became active since 2nd week of April, exclusively for residents of Jose Panganiban. Aside from the LGU Facebook Page on Psychosocial Intervention, other partner agencies like Jose Panganiban National High School – Guidance Center, also used the social media platform to know how residents are coping with the pandemic. The school, in collaboration with the local government unit, also extended their services to those who seek counselling by setting-up the Online Psychosocial Intervention Program.
