Celebration of National Mental Health Awareness Month (Mental Health Seminars)
In times of adversity, mental health and wellbeing awareness holds a vital role in helping people, especially students, cope with the various impacts brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In line with that, the Local Government Unit of Pura, in coordination with the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office, headed by Ma’am Analiza Campo and staff, simultaneously conducted a Mental Health Awareness Seminar. Mr. Joe Myrence Mendoza, a Licensed Psychometrician, serves as the Resource Speaker. The topics include breaking the stigma attached to mental health and differentiating mental health and mental illness. Similarly, the seminar aimed to educate students on how they could cope with the situation and stress brought on by the current health crisis.
Remember, mental health is just as important as physical health!
