Nadine Lustre has partnered with Liza Soberano and Yassi Pressman to further promote mental health awareness in the Philippines.
The three stars have built the company Mind You which aims to provide Filipinos easier and affordable access to mental health experts.
“It is a platform. It's for mental health. The easiest way to describe it is that it is a platform that will make therapists or psychologists or psychiatrists easier to access and making it much [cheaper],” she said in an interview with CNN Philippines.
The actress shared that they want to break the stigma associated with mental health problems through Mind You.
“Now here in the Philippines, mental health here is such a huge problem just because it is not widely talked about. There is still a stigma when it comes to mental health… We are doing our best to try to normalize it and pretty much tell everyone this is a normal thing. You can call or talk to someone and help you with what it is you are going through. We are still working on it but I’m really, really excited about Mind You,” she said.
In the same interview, Nadine also shared her future plans. The actress relayed that she might move to Siargao as she finds living on the island good for her mental health.
“I’m really considering moving to Siargao just because I always wanted to be closer to nature and just being on the island really helps with my mental health. Everything is more simple there which is something that I really love,” she relayed.
“[I’m] still working on the same stuff. A lot of projects coming in. Definitely working on music still but probably be more based on the island now.,” she added.
