In Touch Targets Cavite Youths for Mental Health Awareness Campaign

In Touch’s Helpline Manager Bernadette Logan said, “Mental health advocacy is a year-round campaign for our organization but every September we give special attention and effort to improve awareness on this often taboo but vital subject matter. While suicide rates are higher in adults than in youths, it remains one of the leading causes of death in teens and young adults.”

In Touch’s Counseling and Crisis Line as well as Youth Advocacy teams recently joined the Alab Music and Art Festival in Imus, Cavite by setting up an information booth to educate and encourage youths to help spread mental health awareness. This is just one of In Touch’s many activities in observance of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in September.

In Touch’s Helpline Manager Bernadette Logan said, “Mental health advocacy is a year-round campaign for our organization but every September we give special attention and effort to improve awareness on this often taboo but vital subject matter. While suicide rates are higher in adults than in youths, it remains one of the leading causes of death in teens and young adults.”

“We urge anyone with mental health issues to know they can get help simply by calling our Crisis Line numbers. This service is free, available 24/7 and we guarantee confidentiality. We have been operating in the Philippines for more than 40 years and our team of professionals is well trained to help on any issues including the young age groups.

In Touch welcomes volunteers who are willing to undergo a comprehensive training program to become helpline responders.
