| Posted by UP Media and Public Relations Office

The deadline of submission of entries to the search for UP Students Mental Health Advocacy Projects has been extended from September 1, 2021 to September 5, 2021. This was announced by the University of the Philippines’ Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (UP OVPAA) and the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA).

Mental health (MH) advocates play critical roles in responding to the mental health concerns and coping needs of UP students. To help create a network of advocates for a healthy and nurturing UP, the UP OVPAA and the OSFA launched the Sandigan, Sandalan: Training and Advocacy Programs for Mental Health, with the Search for UP Student Mental Health Advocacy Projects as one of its component projects.

The Search for UP Student Mental Health Advocacy Projects is a UP System-wide search for innovative mental health promotion ideas from eligible student organizations and groups. The project is a way of involving students in the promotion of mental health.
