. Jerika Ejercito once suffered chronic depression and that’s when she thought of founding ‘I Am The Issue’ Foundation to help Filipinos deal with mental health issues. Jerika Ejercito lived in London for nine years and got depressed when she returned to the Philippines. Speaking in an interview November 2013 during the launch of her foundation, she said: “I sought help, I sought psychiatric help. You know, it just started kasi when I moved back, e. I think I had a very difficult time adjusting, being away for nine years, you know. I left when I was sixteen, pagbalik ko, twenty-seven na ako. Parang it was very hard for me to adjust, parang reverse culture shock, you know, not having my friends… So it was very difficult. It started around early 2012, then I seeked help.”
