FMHI  (Filipino Mental Health Initiative) 

We help increase the happiness of our community. How do we do this?

  • Help reduce the stigma of mental health and substance abuse, because even today there are too many myths floating around about mental health.
  • Increase access to services, because so many people who need help have trouble getting the help.
  • Empower the community through outreach. After all, not everyone knows all the resources available.

History
