Citing the prevalence of mental health issues and the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 crisis, the Social Justice and Empowerment Ministry has said it will on Thursday launch a toll-free helpline to enable access to mental health resources.

The “Kiran” mental health rehabilitation helpline number, 1800-599-0019, will provide callers “support for early screening, first-aid, psychological support, distress management, mental well-being, preventing deviant behaviours, psychological crisis management etc.,” a Ministry statement said. The helpline will offer services in 13 languages, it said.

Kudos to government. This was desperately required. Specially, at times when we are socially distancing with family and friends and feeling lonely and depressed.
