Mental Health Awareness film “Sa Pagsuyo” to launch by PCCI R02

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan— “Hindi lang ho mayayaman, hindi lang ho sikat, walang sini-sino ang suicide attempt”, said Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) Regional Governor Cloyd Velasco as they introduced their film supporting Mental Health Awareness entitled “Sa Pagsuyo” in Tipon Tipan sa PIA earlier today, April 23 together with Executive Secretary Evelyn Velasco.

(There is no exemption in suicide regardless of who you are and what you have. It is not just for the rich and famous people. Anyone can be a victim of this.)

According to Gov. Velasco, depression and suicide attempt are still relevant issue and many people are trying to commit suicide. “Alam po namin na napakadaming insidente po ng suicide so we wanted na at least man lang ma-avoid at makatulong tayo isa o dalawa o madaming mga tao na they are on edge of giving up so we wanted to launch this (PCCI) because we wanted really that business sector to be part of this advocacy”, he said.

(We know that there are lots of suicide incidents so we wanted to at least avoid and help even one or many people who are on their edge of giving up, so we wanted to launch this (PCCI) because we wanted really that business sector be part of this advocacy)

“Sa Pagsuyo” is also to call out the attention of the parents in guiding their children. “Usually youth ang tinatamaan ng ganitong cases. Based on research, age po ng 12 hanggang 19 ng mga bata, yun yung mga pinaka crucial moment na they are looking for something, yung identity nila hindi nila madefine”, said Evelyn.

(Usually the youth are mostly the victim of this case. Based on research, age 12-19 is the most crucial moment for a child wherein they are looking for something, they are trying to find their identity)

Meanwhile, they also stated that there are certain reasons why people kill themselves; family problems, serious fight with someone, debts and identity crisis. Through the film, they wanted to address everyone the importance of this issue.

Furthermore, the launching of the film will be on May 4, 2 pm-5 pm at GBA Building, Liban Street, Tuguegarao City. The ticket will be worth 300 pesos with free snacks. There will also be a panel interview with key people regarding mental health awareness. Moreover, they are planning to have a campus tour to show the students the message of their film.

The film is a story hope that will make individuals learn their purpose in life. It is directed by Kirsten James who is also a mental health advocate. northernforum.net
