By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: Ever since the city has gone into lockdown, helplines catering to various needs of the city -- physical and mental -- have opened up.
Shaira Munjal, a city based psychologist, has set up a helpline for those who may need mental health care during these times.
For now, Munjal’s focus is helping those with mental health issues get through the 21-day isolation period knowing that someone is available to listen to them, a call away.
Mental health has become a worldwide concern ever since people were asked to isolate themselves at home in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
These volunteers are provided with gloves and will leave the supplies at their doors without coming into contact with the caller, Panchapakesan said.
