Mental health: a youth perspective

/ 09:15 AM February 21, 2017

On January 28, we had another interesting #HealthXPH chat on Twitter co-moderated by Dr. Gia Sison (@giasison), medical students RJ Nagui (@rjnaguitskona) and Ryan Lintao (@rylintao), and Sen. Risa Hontiveros (@risahontiveros). The topic was the youth and mental health.

The flurry of tweets went past the one hour allotted for the tweet chat. Below I’ve gathered tweets that struck me because of their candor and bravery. They cry out to be shared. These tweets were answers to the first question posed:


What are the common problems faced by the youth with regard to mental health? Do you have any mental health related stories?

Read the replies from the youth at The Endocrine Witch.
