Launching of Mental Health Program – Provision of FREE Psychiatric Evaluation and Medicines to Tangalanons with Psychiatric Needs

The program was started by a message from VM Gene Fuentes, expressing his support to the Mental Health Program and his concern to Tangalanons who have special Mental Health needs. Through this initiative, LGU Tangalan with the able leadership of Mayor Gary Fuentes, will conduct pre-scheduled psychiatric consults to identified patients through a MOA with Dr. Jeanette Ortega, and further provide the prescribed medications for free. VM Gene stressed the importance of strong family support in addition to the free initiatives provided by the LGU to sustain the good well-being of the identified psychiatric patients. It is the vision of the local leaders that all Tangalanons shall enjoy the best quality of life, without suffering from mental health diseases.

Dr. Jeanette Ortega also gave a message expressing her appreciation and thanks to the LGU Tangalan for prioritizing the health of Tangalanons and for conducting such activity, which is a first in the whole province.
