Heart Evangelista, the only Filipino woman to speak at the ‘Global Town Hall 2020’ virtual international event, used the platform to raise awareness and break down the stigma surrounding mental health.

“In a way, I feel like every time a Filipino goes somewhere I’m very proud,” the actress and artist told GMA News Online on Friday. “I’m also very proud to have had a platform to talk about the things that fascinate me. It inspires me to do more.”

She added, “Never in my wildest dreams have I thought that someone would contact me to talk about what I’m really passionate about. It makes more sense of what I do.”

Heart, who spoke about her own experiences with mental health and dealing with her anxiety, spoke about the need to normalize talking about mental health in conversations and getting rid of the stigma.

During the one-day global event on Friday, she said: “This is something that few people talk about openly. It is not as standardized as it should be.”

“It’s a personal matter for me. Myself, for what I’ve been doing for 24 years – all the pressure of show business, trying to be beautiful, trying not to be outrageous, and all that – that is. something for you subconsciously, in a way you damage your soul, ”added Heart.

Most importantly, the actress insisted that everyone know that it’s okay not to be well.

“I hope I was able to reach someone who needed to hear this,” Heart said during the interview.

Besides Heart, several world leaders such as the President of the Republic of Indonesia Joko Widodo, the Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Dr Mari Pangestu, the Managing Director of the World Bank, the Dr Mari Pangestu, Executive Director of the Manila Observatory Dr Antonio La Viña and political analyst Richard Heydarian gave their respective talks during the global event which aimed to discuss how to rebuild the post-pandemic world.

Earlier this year, Heart revealed the extent of her mental health issues.

Heart admitted to having “mild depression” in 2018, when she lost her twins to a miscarriage.

And last November it manifested on his body as Burning Tongue Syndrome.

Heart had another episode, just before quarantine. And it wasn’t until she was stuck at home with a lockdown that she finally began to better manage her depression and anxiety. —JCB, GMA News
