Anne Curtis (L), Iza Calzado, Lovi Poe, Bianca Gonzalez, and Ryza Cenon (R) are among the celebrities who have contributed to the online discussion about mental health awareness.


The world grieves another loss with the unexpected demise of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

It happened on the heels of fashion designer Kate Spade's passing.

It was confirmed that both had taken their own lives.

In light of both tragedies, discussions about mental health awareness continue to make rounds on social media.

Celebrities turn to their respective social media accounts to send messages of hope.

Anne Curtis tweets, "Depression is real and we never know what people might be going through every day.

"Be kind.

"Take time to talk.

"Ask how your friends are...

" It just might make a difference."

Likewise, Bianca Gonzalez reminds her followers to be kind to one another.

Really, every single one of us have demons we are dealing with. These events are reminders to be kinder to each other. It isn't that hard.

Lovi Poe and Iza Calzado both post the quote card: "Hey warrior, keep going."

Meanwhile, Ryza Cenon pays tribute to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, DJ Avicii, Kate Spade, and Anthony Bourdain.

She writes, "When you’re depressed you don’t control your thoughts, your thoughts control you.

"I wish people would understand this. Because this is not a joke. 

"It’s hard to battle with your own demon inside you, even if you're trying to fight it ,but still you end up surrendering to your demon.

"This is hard and sad because I know what they are dealing with."

In her second post, Ryza opens up about her own struggle with depression, and spells out how hard it is to battle against your own demons.

She begins, "Sa mga taong hindi naiintindihan ang depression.

"Para sa inyo madaling sabihin na 'bakit hindi ka humingi ng tulong sa iba?' 'Inom mo yan tapos itulog mo lang ok ka na.' 'Magdasal ka' and etc...

"Hindi po ganun kadali sa amin na nakakaranas ng depression ang magsalita at mag-share ng nararamdaman.

"Kahit kay God (nakakalungkot man pero totoo to) kapag under depression ka at kakausapin mo siya nauuwi sa sinisisi mo siya kung bakit ka nagkakaganito pinarurusahan ka kahit wala kang ginagawang masama.

"Lahat kukwestyunin mo kay God.

"May iba na akala mo makakatulong sa 'yo para itayo ka pero sila pa ang aapak sa 'yo hanggang sa madurog ka.

"Madaling sabihin na humingi ng tulong pero mahirap gawin kaya nga ang gusto nila mag-isa at mag-isa nila haharapin at tatapusin minsan (ang sakit) dahil ayaw nila masaktan nang paulit-ulit.

"Ayaw nila makadagdag sa problema ng iba at may sasabihin sa kanila na hindi maganda at masasaktan ulit dahil sa totoo lang NAKAKAPAGOD siya NAKAKAPAGOD magkaroon ng Depression.

"Sakit siya na on and off na minsan akala mo ok ka na pero babalik sya ulit."

Ryza then underlines the value of  looking out for one another, "Kaya maging sensitive tayo sa mga tao nasa paligid natin.

"Wag niyong hintayin lumapit at humingi ng tulong dahil hindi mangyayari yun bihira mangyari yun.

"Sa simpleng 'uy kamusta ka na? Ok ka ba? Or dito lang ako na kaibigan anytime kung kailan mo ng kasama or kausap'

"Sa simple pangangamusta makakatulong ka.

"Kaya dapat isipin din natin yung lumalabas sa bibig natin na baka hindi tayo aware yung taong sinasabihan mo may mabigat palang dinadala at nasasaktan mo na.

"Lahat tayo dito sa mundo ay tao lang, nasasaktan.

"So be nice and be sensitive."
