The government will provide this service under the district mental health programme with the help of mental health institute (MHI) of SCB. It has provided three phone numbers for each district to consult with professionals without visiting hospitals during the pandemic.
“The helpline numbers will be functional from 10am to 5pm (Monday to Saturday). Each district has mental health professionals to resolve issues of people suffering from mental health problems. They can also take help from MHI,” an official said.
