Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon stressed the importance of caring for one’s mental health after a fruitful chat with physician Nick “Okidok” Echavez.

In a Facebook post, Biazon shared his appreciation for Echavez’s new advocacy of giving free mental health advice through social media.

“Napaka timely ng kanyang ginagawa. Dahil kung may isang isyung pangkulusugan na dulot ng pandemya maliban sa respiratory disease na COVID19 na malaki ang epekto sa mga tao, mental health na yun,” he said.

Biazon said his meeting with Echavez made him realize the importance of investing adequately in mental health services.

“Sa kabuuan, ang pagpapalakas ng programang pangkalusugan ay dapat mailagay sa top priority sa recovery at rehabilitation mula sa pandemyang ito na pinakita sa atin ang mga puwang at kahinaan ng kasalukuyang sistema sa harap ng isang malawakang public health emergency,” he said.
