In celebration of National Mental Health Week, the Department of Health (DOH) in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) RenewHealth, launched on October 15, 2021, the first mobile application for mental health and self-care for Filipinos, titled ‘Lusog-Isip.’

According to the press release by DOH, the mobile app was developed in response to the growing need for mental healthcare in our country, most especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It aims to expand access to culturally-adapted, evidence-based tools and interventions on mental health, emphasizing self-help and self-care,” the statement read.

Lusog-Isip app will monitor users through screening to know their overall well-being and how they usually cope with stress, before recommending ways they can help themselves through workbooks, exercises, audio guides, journaling, mood tracking, or simple self-care reminders.

Moreover, if the users feel they really need to seek professional help, they can also access a list of mental health and psychosocial support service providers near them or online.

“This app is a timely innovation and we thank our partners at USAID for making this a reality. As the DOH and our health workers strive towards coping and living with this pandemic, we must find ways to care for the mental well-being of our fellow Filipinos who continue to suffer because of this current circumstance,” said Frances Prescilla Cuevas, Chief Health Program Officer of the DOH Mental Health Division.

“Lusog-Isip is a self-care app and one way we can bring mental healthcare more accessible to those who need it,” Cuevas shared.

Lusog-Isip will be available for both Android and iOS devices through the Google Play and Apple App Store.
