It has become an inevitable and deplorable scenario now, where we come across lots of children, especially the ones in their teenage phase committing suicide due to psychological issues and depressions. Actor Vishal has now joined hands with The Narayanan Group for ‘The Disha Helpline’ Initiative, which is a toll free number for all students, which helps them to deal with their mental health issues.
In this awareness program video, Vishal says, “It’s simple as this. When we have a severe knee pain, where we can’t play, walk or even stand, the first thing we do is approach a doctor. So, why not for a psychological and mental health problem? It’s shocking to hear the fact that for every hour, a child commits suicide in India due to psychological stress and depression. These are the children, whom we think that we love the ones in our neighborhood, the ones besides us. They need a desperate care for a good and bright future.
Disha Helpline is a Toll free number, by which professional help is given to all students that need it. It is reality that children don’t vent out their emotional issues to parents due to certain barriers such age and generation gap and many factors. It’s advisable that by reaching the expert counselors and mental health professionals, this crisis can be solved leading to a peaceful life and future of children.”
