GMA News TV partners with DOH for two lifestyle shows
 'Healthy Ever After' is a talk and lifestyle program on family health hosted by newlyweds Pancho Magno and Max Collins.

First to air last Saturday (Dec. 8) at 5:30 p.m., Healthy Ever After is a talk and lifestyle program on family health hosted by newlyweds Pancho and Max. 

Aside from being an actor, Pancho is a registered nurse. In the program, he and Max discuss various topics—from family planning, maternal care, safe motherhood, newborn care packages, breastfeeding, expanded program on immunization, to adolescent health sexuality.

For its pilot episode, Healthy Ever After tackled family planning and its importance to the Filipino family. Max and Pancho tried to be parents to six children. 

Two mothers also went on a palengke (wet market) challenge. One woman has six children while the other only has three. For P300, the two moms had to manage to feed their respective families.

Meanwhile, Rocco hosts The Healthy Juan, a health talk show about degenerative diseases airing every Sunday at 8:00 p.m.. The show premiered on Sunday, Dec. 9.

A nursing graduate himself, Rocco talks about mental health, depression, suicide, healthy aging, and organ donation. At the same time, Rocco will be joined by resource persons who will discuss the importance of having a mindset that disability should not be a hindrance for you to live a normal life.

For his first episode, Rocco tackled depression. All around the world, depression is a serious mental health disorder. Depression can happen to anyone. Here in the Philippines a large number of Filipinos are battling depression, with some cases leading to suicide.

Rocco sat down with those suffering from depression. Who would have thought that model, singer, actress, and social media influencer Solenn Heussaff also experienced depression? Solenn shared that social media made a great impact on her condition.

Rocco also visited the family of a teenager who committed suicide because of depression and discovered what led to the young woman to take her life.

Healthy Ever After is directed by King Mark Baco while The Healthy Juan is directed by Adolf Alix, Jr. Both programs have resource persons from DOH who will help in the discussion of the featured topics.

Catch Healthy Ever After every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and The Healthy Juan every Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on GMA News TV.
