Bhopal: Sarv Dharam Sadbhavna Manch has started a free counselling cell for people affected by Coronavirus. According to a press statement issued by the Manch here on Saturday, 17 professional councillors are giving free counselling to the affected people.
The working president of the Manch Fr. Anand Muttungal said, “The World Health Organisation has warned the world that there are a number of people suffering from the fear of coronavirus, if you do not attend to them in time, it might create a new problem for the society.”
He said, “generally the Indian society cares very little about the mental health. Most people hide their mental issues from the society. We are offering this service to people who are finding it difficult to handle the anxious situation that has risen from the world-wide sickness caused by Corona Virus pandemic. We are working as helpers to control the spread of the disease and prepare people to face any situation that may come on their way.”
Another working president of the Manch, L.S. Herdenia, said “for the time being we have started with a 17-member team of experts. In the coming days we will be starting it for the entire state. People from anywhere in the Country can contact us for help. We are open to all sections of the society.”
He said the Manch has dedicated three phone numbers -- 07554025593, 8889599401 and 0752556606 -- for this service for the time being. The needy people can contact and the counsellors will provide guidance to those who share their problems. Privacy and confidentiality of the persons will be kept strictly confidential, he added.
The free counselling programme will be coordinated by L.S. Herdenia, Dr. Anand Muttungal and Brij Kishor Nagar. Psychiatrist Dr. Ruma Bhattacharya, Dr Jamal Akhtar, Irshat Jahan, Umesh Kumar Romday, Kuldeep Tigga, Saroj Mani Nande, Antisha Tiwari, Sarika Dubey, Geeta, Manoj Pateriya, Meenakshi, Akanksha Shukla, Heena Quazi, Dr. Juhi Gupta, Dr. Rahul Sharma, Dr. Divya Mishra and Dr Vivek Sharma are part of the team.
