A nonprofit organization providing mental health services has informed the public that its staff will be taking a break to recalibrate to better serve Filipinos.

The Philippine Mental Health Association, Inc. (PMHA) announced on Tuesday that it would temporarily suspend its Remote mental health and psychosocial support (RMHPSS) starting today to recover and take a mental health break.

“As much as we would like to provide you with prompt assistance, we regret to inform you that a number of our volunteers contracted COVID-19 while our other responders had to take a much needed mental health break,” he said. he stated on Facebook. Publish.

The organization added that Filipinos can contact the 24/7 crisis hotline operated by the National Center for Mental Health if they needed mental health support. Their hotlines are as follows:

  • 1553
  • 0966 351 4518
  • 0908 639 2672

“Please wait for announcements on when our RMHPSS will reopen,” the organization added.

PMHA is one of the organizations providing free mental health support to Filipinos in distress during the COVID-19 pandemic.

People can take advantage of her psychological and psychosocial support remotely through her numbers on Viber:

  • 0995 093 2679
  • 0918 402 9832

Earlier this year, a Catholic official said mental health must be part of the overall response to COVID-19, as restrictions and limitations during the pandemic lead to feeling isolated.

“Mental health issues and problems would be another pandemic if we are not together to help our brothers and sisters”, Camillian Father Dan Cancino, executive secretary of the Episcopal Bishops’ Commission on Health Care, said last February.

Bernard Argamosa, program director for the National Center for Mental Health said more Filipinos have called their helplines since last year due to anxiety and depression over the pandemic.
