La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the city government is eyeing mental health care programs for students during the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
The Benguet politiko said it has partnered with various basic, secondary, and tertiary educational institutions for the project.
Salda explained the project is in line with the 2017 ordinance institutionalizing mental health care in La Trinidad.
Under the ordinance, mental health care is to be integrated in the primary health care system in each barangay.
It also aims to create a multi-sectoral network that will develop programs to address mental health issues among children, adolescents, and the elderly.
