Let’s face it. Our small talk culture in the Philippines is not always for the faint-hearted.

Probably you’ve experienced getting your mental health brushed aside by someone saying that you could
just sleep it off like everything will magically get better with a few hours of shuteye.

We all know that mental health remains a misunderstood topic in the Philippines.

And we know that people with mental issues are often discriminated.

Last year we lost 2 fellow iitiian because of suicide.

As a nursing student I cannot stand to see these young and talented students taking their own life
because of the prejudice they encountered.

that’s why I’m into the advocacy of empowering students to be responsible for their holistic health
focusing on their mental well -being in order to serve as role models in the community.

Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon, I mayer pasandalan and my partner alesandra mocorro have come
up to the study:

PSYCHOSOCIAL CONCERNS AND MENTAL WELL BEING OF COLLEGE STUDENTS: A


BASIS IN DESIGNING AND IMPLEMENTING HCI MODEL MOBILE APPLICATION
PROTOTYPE.

As college calls for significant transition, it deals with unpercented amount of stressors, presence of
concerns may affects their academics and ways of thinking, but when stigma enters the scene it worsen
everything. According to the World Health Organization, near to 800,000 individuals take their own life
and there are numerous individuals who attempt suicide every year. Suicide is the second leading cause of
death among 15 to 29 years old globally WHILE…..

In the Philippines, the assessed number of suicides in 2012 was 2,558 or a suicide rate of 2.9 per 100,000
populace. The Philippines positions 150 out of 170 nations in terms of suicide rates.

Since mobile activities are being progressively embraced by individual, why dont we try using technology
to reach out to students, with the use of hci concept that allows a good interaction with the computer, a
more innovative mental health.
METHODS

The study is a research developmemtal study, which we use purposive and ramdom sampling to the
students who are eligible to the set criteria in msu iit, the researchers uses wembs and was duly approved
by the authors.

SO HERE IS OUR RESEARCH PARADIGM:

Our research paradigm correlates with the General systems theory by berthalanfy, which our input is to
determine, and data will ne intgreted which then serves as

(Insert method of data collection)

Results and Discussion

To answer our objective 1: TO DETERMINE THE DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE OF THE


RESPONDENTS.
