Gov. Lala Mendoza Champions Mental Health Initiative

Cotabato Governor Emmylou “Lala” J. TaliƱo-Mendoza supports the initiative of the Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) in addressing mental health issues within the community. The IPHO continues to implement its extensive “Mental Health Program” to provide assistance to fellow citizens experiencing mental health challenges.

Recently, this program was conducted in the towns of Makilala, Arakan, and Carmen, Cotabato. Approximately 164 patients underwent free consultations with a psychiatrist and received appropriate medication to address their issues. Through this initiative, the community, especially the families of the patients, are provided with essential knowledge about mental health, thereby reducing stigma and discrimination associated with the condition.

This endeavor signifies a proactive approach towards mental health awareness and support, demonstrating the commitment of local authorities to address the mental well-being of their constituents.
