Toll-free helpline

The coronavirus pandemic has led to the loss of livelihood, crippled the access to food, and other social services, especially for vulnerable populations. The Banyan Academy and The Banyan have launched a toll-free number that aims to address gaps in access to care through a ‘mental health helpline’ system.

This will address various issues related to mental ill-health, and concerns linked to psychosocial distress. Callers will have a confidential and safe environment to discuss grievances and be provided information regarding social entitlements that may alleviate the distress associated with their disability and poor health.
