Actor Baron Geisler is now a changed man and an advocate for mental health awareness.
Being a self-confessed alcoholic, Geisler has been consistently involved in several public brawls and physical altercation with family members that left him bloodied and bruised. It even came to a point that the actor has no longer projects to attend to. However, despite all the criticisms he had to face every single day, Baron vowed that he will take on his rehab “very seriously this time.”
Recently, Baron has been posting on his Instagram account his journey in recovering and healing, one of which is becoming a speaker in symposiums where he raises awareness about mental health and dangerous vices. He also shared that he has turned to religion in his bid to start over with his life.

Almost done with this @eparwamichael I’ll return it very soon. Ahhh…. butas butas ng konti ang T-shirt ko. ???? Tagos e. Need to strengthen Faith! minsan kasi bumabalik sa ahh.. kaya ko to mag isa mentality. Hehe..For example yung meds ko naubos kanina so may outing kami bukas ng umaga with fellow Christians from Canada nag panic ako for a while then nabasa ko to. Natanong ko sa sarili ko. Isn’t God’s strength and power sufficient enough for me? So mas klaro na sa akin ngayon at nawala na takot ko to finish this book. Salamat and it’s about time Papa Bear! Happy Anniversary sa #MyFathersHouseofWorship ????????????????❤️☝????
He then described himself as “touched by God to touch others” in his newest post – one of the many over the past few months that had him show off his renewed life. This included joining fellowships with Maranatha Christian Fellowship, a “Bible-based, Spirit-led congregation” in Cebu, and speaking about mental health awareness at various symposiums.
The turnaround was welcomed by his fans, who have been sharing their own experiences of changing their lifestyles with him and encouraging him in his new path in the comments.

Less than a year may not be much for some but for this person, it means a whole new life. Long have been gone the man that we’d watched in primetime news getting into brawls, drunk as sh*t and what-else. This is Baron 2.0. These photos were just the ones taken last Tuesday, Oct 16, but for most of his time when he’s in Digos City, Davao del Sur, he tirelessly made rounds to speak and share the good news. From one engagement to another, he pours his life’s story and speaks his love and gratitude to the Lord for his transformation. This time, you won’t see the “brave” man, angry and cocky against anyone who gets into his way, instead you’ll see a brave man who’s unafraid to bare his soul. A brave man who tells about his darkest days while hoping that maybe his story to tell will positively touch the lives of those who’re listening. Baron now is turning his adversities to new opportunities. For all the goodness and miracles that the Lord has made into his life, he is paying it forward. More power, Bah! In behalf of the Municipality of Hagonoy Davao del Sur, Thank You Baron Geisler, Serene Valley, Genevieve Marie Dolores Brandares-paulino and to everyone who made this possible. Salamat sa Ginoo!
