Showing where the nearest help is.
Mental Health AWHEREness is a volunteer-organized online platform and map that shows the locations of mental health facilities and services that offer help to people with depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol dependency, etc., within the Philippines.
Through this map, we hope that more people who are dealing with mental health issues would be encouraged to reach out and seek help.
We aim to promote mental health awareness through information, education, communication, and mapping of available mental health services and their corresponding important information that would help and encourage people to seek mental healthcare without telling others until they are ready to do so; and to tell decision-makers where more mental health services are needed.
We envision a society free from mental health stigma and where mental healthcare and information is accessible to anyone.
- To advocate for policy and system change which accord rights and benefits to individuals living with a mental illness through the use of spatial information;
- To educate the public about mental health and mental illness while working to eliminate stigma, labels, and prejudice; and
- To promote mental health and well-being for all individuals through education and training.
