Roy Dahildahil, Executive Director of #MentalHealthPH on LGBTQ Mental Health, Mental Health in the Philippines, and Building Frameworks to Drive Impactful Mental Healthcare

“At this time, no new laws are being lobbied in mental health; we’re primarily focusing on ensuring the Mental Health Act is executed properly and that there is proper implementation at the local-level. Like many laws enacted in the Philippines, without continuous monitoring and oversight, the national laws will fail to trickle down to the grassroots level, so that’s where the work of our organizations come in.”
