Manila Apostolic Administrator Bishop Broderick Pabillo said that offering a prayer for someone who is suffering from a mental health problem can provide relief for that individual.

Pabillo also emphasized the importance of taking good care of one’s mental health. 

“Dapat maging maingat at maging conscious tayo kasi ito’y bahagi rin ng ating kalusugan. Madalas nakikita natin ang kalusugan natin na pangkatawan lang, kundi pati sa ating kaisipan, may kalusugan din dyan [We must be careful and be conscious because it is also part of our health. We often see our health in terms of physical. But in mental, there is also health there],” said Pabillo in an interview with Church-run Radyo Veritas.

The prelate also issued a prayer for the observance of the World Mental Health Day on Saturday, October 10.

“Diyos Amang mapagmahal, kami po’y nagpapasalamat sa’yo sa biyaya ng aming kalusugan. Kalusugan sa aming katawan, sa aming kaisipan at sa aming kaluluwa [Our loving Father, we thank you for the gift of health. The health in our body, mind and in our soul].

Ipinagdadasal po namin ngayon ang World Mental Health Awareness, ang mga kapatid namin na magkaiba po ng mga problema sa kanilang kalusugang pangkaisipan[We pray for the World Mental Health Awareness, for our brothers and sisters who have different mental health problems].

Gabayan n’yo po sila, iligtas n’yo po sila, bigyan po sila ng mga taong makakaunawa sa kanila at makakatulong sa kanila; At ipinagdarasal din po namin na kaming lahat ay maligtas sa ganitong karamdaman sa aming kaisipan [Please guide and save them. Give them people who can understand and help them. We also pray that we will all be spared from mental illnesses].

Ito po’y aming hinihiling sa pamamagitan ni Kristong aming Panginoon. Amen [We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen].”
