Claudine, certified defender ng mental health awareness

Claudine Barretto is breaking the stigma against mental illnesses.

The actress proudly shared how she’s been getting help from a psychiatrist, and that it’s not something to be ashamed of.

“I’m proud to have my doctor/mentor/sister as my doctor,” she wrote on Instagram yesterday, January 17. “Through my ups & downs your words of wisdom, compassion & love keep me going. I’m proud to be your patient.”

Claudine further shared in the comments that she’s been diagnosed with anxiety/panic disorder ever since former on-and-off-screen partner Rico Yan passed away, and she’s glad people are slowly becoming more open about mental health.

“Because of my honesty some people used [to say] my seeing a doctor as baliw… but I’m glad people are more open na po,” she said.
