On the passage of the Philippine Mental Health Law

June 21, 2018

We laud the signing of the Philippine Mental Health Law as an important step that would make a difference in the lives of people with mental illness.

Those afflicted by this health problem should no longer lurk in the dark.

The next crucial step is funding, and we hope the government will not renege on its commitment to infuse resources to give life to the law.

Funding is needed to pave the way for mental health research, diagnosis and treatment.
