“SHOJON- tele mental health service” is an initiative of SAJIDA Foundation aiming to ensure mental health care for low, poor, and ultra-poor individuals who otherwise can’t access mental health services. Using this platform any individual sustaining mental distress can take mental health treatment ranging from primary care all the way to long-term intervention such as counseling/psychotherapy and psychiatric support from psychologists and psychiatrists. Anyone from any region of the country can take mental health services in affordable cost using their mobile by calling on a common number. Here, initially a para-counselor provides primary mental health care to a client and then based on psychological assessments refers to SHOJON’s psychologists and/or psychiatrists as per needs. The Helpline No is 09612-119900 & its service remains open every day from 8 am to 8 pm.
