SEN. HONTIVEROS IS GLAD WHEN DUTERTE SIGNED THE MENTAL HEALTH LAW OR RA 11036









Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros has expressed her happiness when finally President Rodrigo Duterte has signed Republic Act No. 11036 into a law or the Philippine Mental Health Law that advocates the rights and welfare of persons with mental health needs.

Hontiveros, author and principal sponsor of the bill in the Senate, revealed this as she wanted the government policy to integrate mental health care in the country’s public healthcare system.


The bill was principally authored by Senate by Senate President Vicente Sotto III, and co-authored by Senators Loren Legarda, Sonny Trillanes, Bam Aquino, Sonny Angara, and Joel Villanueva.
