The webinar was divided into two parts: “Common Mental Health Concerns Among the Youth” and “Ways and Procedures on How to Deal with Mental Health Issues” discussed by Prof. Charlon Agos and Dr. Gary C. Dy respectively. </p> <p>In his presentation, Professor Agos clarified the thin line between mental illness and mental health. “When we talked about our mental health, we’re talking about our well-being: our emotions, our thoughts, and feelings, our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties, our social connections, and our understanding of the world around us. A mental illness is an illness that affects the way people think, feel, behave, or interact with others,” he explained.</p> <p>Meanwhile, Dr. Dy encouraged the participants to ask for professional help rather than having self-diagnosis. He furthermore laid out the danger by explaining the possibilities of missing the nuances of the diagnosis, the subtleties that the diagnosis constitutes, and undermining the role of the doctor which could end up creating problems that do not exist in the first place.</p> <p>Eugene Cabatac, one of the participants noted that there is a fine line between depression and sadness, and we should not self-diagnose regardless of our will to understand ourselves rather, seek help, preferably from the experts. “The problem for most of us is we tend to use such complicated and technical terms like depression and anxiety without really understanding its nature. We value everyone’s feelings, but we should not be based solely on what we read online,” he added.</p> <p>In his message, University President Dr. Manuel Muhi said that he also believes that the strength of our country lies in how we develop our youth with the right education and values. To support this, the NSTP Director Dr. Rovelina Jacolbia, emphasized in her opening remarks that “Youth, nowadays, possess intelligence and skills that will take our country into its next level of success. As they are being more aware of what is happening, the wiser they become in scrutinizing the actions being taken by the society surrounding them.” She also added that to achieve this, one must recognize his/her identity first by prioritizing and dealing with his/her mental health. </p> <p>The third part of the webinar titled “YAKAP TANGGAP: Breaking Barriers Towards Gender Equality” will be held on May 16, 2021, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 NN.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" class="image image-full" src="https://scontent.fcrk1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/p720x720/185391593_3899513906811250_3595845116444180309_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_eui2=AeHr5LxMt24FRt6MxEYA7qm1sAexhV31t-qwB7GFXfW36qeIHmbjLWFLNHHayT-CR4wEmqz-v_yhWZOa4G5b3Ut-&_nc_ohc=7BemPBFeBKIAX-Dnbos&_nc_ht=scontent.fcrk1-2.fna&tp=6&oh=693498e9e33c0cd33f072e43bb223d70&oe=60C46992" /><br /> <br />  </p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=3DspE%2bSJiak%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Fri, 14 May 2021 10:52:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=3DspE%2bSJiak%3d Journ students bag awards at the Philippine Journalism Research Conference 2021 Joven Ventura Parameo, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>College of Communications students bagged awards in the recently concluded Philippine Journalism Research Conference (PJRC) 2021 held on May 7 and 8. </p> <p>With this year’s theme "State of Journalism during Pandemic,” University of the Philippines’ PJRC seeked to promote Journalism Studies Research, Special Projects Multi-Media, Special Projects Features, Investigative Journalism, and Photo Essay. </p> <p>Among the awards received by PUPians were:</p> <p>3rd Place - Investigative Journalism Category</p> <p>Gabriel Kim Leal</p> <p>“Crackdown on Activists: Arrest, Human Rights Defenders in Duterte's "War on Activists" </p> <p> </p> <p>4th Place - Investigative Journalism Category</p> <p>Kristine Mae Imperial</p> <p>“Takot sa Turok: The Story Behind Vaccine Hesitancy” </p> <p> </p> <p>3rd Place - Special Projects Category (Multi-Media)</p> <p>Joyce Remo</p> <p>“Biyaya ng Musmos”</p> <p> </p> <p>Special Award - Photo Essay Category</p> <p>Michelle Mabingay</p> <p>"Buhay sa Gabi"</p> <p>Ms. Jamela Alindongan, President of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) and Al Jazeera served as the keynote speaker of the event while the McLuhan Panel Forum, featuring Christian Esguerra (McLuhan Fellow 2020), Manny Mogato (McLuhan Fellow 2017), and Miriam Grace Go (McLuhan Fellow 2002) as panel members, was moderated by Professor and Journalist Ms. Kara David. </p> <p>This year's conference was co-organized by the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC), the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), and the University of Santo Tomas (UST), in line with the University of the Philippines Journalism department's commitment to contribute to journalism scholarship, being the Center of Excellence for Journalism of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).<br /> <br /> <img alt="" class="image image-full" src="https://scontent.fcrk1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/183736818_3968894469813905_3759910484099442127_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=8bfeb9&_nc_eui2=AeFxbktt0x8ZGL99UkBN1BUmo1si97evKbCjWyL3t68psLTgWXYM1UTESGdZhK2XRMf32w5Rr17sxXqq2VaTgrO1&_nc_ohc=xmviN6hmHvcAX81olt4&_nc_ht=scontent.fcrk1-1.fna&oh=abed1491ce7e39c146a3e44bf100828f&oe=60BDDDA6" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=PoBAzzEkqfE%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Mon, 10 May 2021 14:23:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=PoBAzzEkqfE%3d PUP among the top HEis in Facebook University Ranking Buellah May P.

Muhi in his speech emphasized the role of educators in students’ awareness and reminded them to also empower themselves through the webinar. “Students will not be enlightened if not because of your efforts and service [teachers]. Maximize all these learning opportunities and use them to arm yourselves with knowledge,” said Muhi.</p> <p>The six-part webinar series kicked off with the topic “Inspire and Transpire: Perks of Being a Motivation-Driven Teacher Amidst the Challenges in Education” which focused on how to keep being motivated amidst the challenges in the new educational setting. </p> <p>Mr. Jerome Hilario and Ms. Genie Rose Ann Marie Oliman served as resource speakers on the topic. Mr. Hilario talked about turning challenges into opportunities to learn and develop. “We have to focus on the good in bad situations as the quotation goes ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonades,” he said.</p> <p>On the other hand, Ms. Oliman discussed the importance of motivation to continue the profession. “If we are motivation-driven teachers, these setbacks won’t hinder us from delivering an effective lesson,” Ms. Oliman exclaimed.</p> <p>A question and answer portion took place after the discussion. The webinar ended with key takeaways from Ms. Alyza Caddauan, the master of the ceremonies. “Teachers’ efforts and sacrifices, on some circumstances, are underrated. And sometimes, if others can't see it, we need to tap our shoulders and give ourselves praises and validation for the efforts that we have done,” Ms. Caddauan shared.</p> <p>There are remaining five more topics about different issues in education which will be discussed in the succeeding webinars.</p> <p><img alt="" class="image image-full" src="https://scontent.fcrk1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/173404280_116166690575618_3050475865337411613_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_eui2=AeHUhtO19nFvbcnuhRQlMsVe6xmevl0dklHrGZ6-XR2SUZ90hRtofcxpAKASnETjO590mch9CpgC6RCuUvjJGm1h&_nc_ohc=HZTRKzkDlQwAX8sAil-&_nc_ht=scontent.fcrk1-1.fna&oh=f32dfd8b78233613be53751cf63b90fa&oe=60BDE551" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=t2IU5aznyls%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Mon, 10 May 2021 14:17:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=t2IU5aznyls%3d First part of AKSYON KABATAAN Webinar series discusses Youth Leadership Aira Mae Golez, Lara Aliyah Mendoza, Shane Brian Dorol, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>“AKSYON KABATAAN: Amplifying the Youth's Civic Role in Nation-Building through Community Education,” organized by PUP – National Service Training Program and PUP – Sandiwa, in collaboration with PUP – College of Education, has successfully launched its first part on May 2, 2021 via Zoom Cloud Meetings simulcast to Facebook with five thousand live viewers.</p> <p>The first episode adhered to the theme, “Ano'ng Ambag Mo: Invocating Youth's Leadership in Promoting Civic Engagement for an Effective Citizenry,” which was divided into two parts: "The General Qualities of a Good Community Leader" and "The Roles and Responsibilities of the Youth in Leading the Community" discussed by Mr. Reienel Ocampo and Mr. Gab Campos respectively.</p> <p>Mr. Ocampo and Mr. Campos encouraged the youth to register and vote wisely on the next election, and to be more engaged in the community not just as citizens but especially as leaders.      </p> <p>"Today's youth is nation’s tomorrow.
