24/7 Siuicide Prevention and Emotional Crisis Line
Research on depression and suicide rates in the Philippines are sorely lacking. Many cases of suicide go unreported due to lack of information and the shame that accompanies the act. Having suicidal ideations is seen as a weakness and as a result, many people attempt because there is no help available to them.
It is with this in mind that the Natasha Goulbourn Foundation along with Dr. Cornelio Banaag, Dr. Ma. Lourdes A. Carandang, Dr. Eleanor Ronquillo and Dr .Ricardo Soler have authored a curriculum that will train responders to handle a suicide hotline for Filipinos.
