DFS Scholar

To provide quality mental health services to underprivileged Filipinos, DFS is taking the initiative to gather sponsors and/or donations for our granted DFS scholars.

 

MENTAL HEALTH ACCESS FOR EVERY JUAN

Mental health in general, are commonly stigmatized, neglected and taken into less importance, despite increasing prevalence of psychological distress among Filipinos. This prevents them from seeking professional help and prefer to rather consult with their close family and friends. But most of the time, expectations are not being met and more harm than good are done (Martinez, A. et al., 2020).

 

Mental illness is the third most common disability in the Philippines. Around 6 million Filipinos are estimated to live with depression and/or anxiety, making Philippines, the country with the third highest rate of mental health problems in the Western Pacific Region (WHO, 2017).

 

Mental disorders are also about twice as prevalent among indigent people. Despite their necessity for mental health services, indigent families are least likely to have access with quality mental health care (Patel, V. et al., 1999). Additional barriers cited by Filipinos include financial difficulty and inaccessibility of services (Martinez, A. et al., 2020).

 

With this, DFS is taking a leading role in an effort to bridge the gap and provide accessibility to the mental health needs and concerns of children and families experiencing financial difficulties. DFS aims to provide quality services, thru our licensed psychologists and psychiatrists, to provide mental health care access for every juan.
