For the last five months, the corona epidemic has spread throughout the country and even the world. For this reason, people are being advised to stay indoors due to lock down in the country and to save themselves and their families. Many people are becoming mentally ill due to staying at home for so many days. In view of this, the government is going to issue a 24 x 7 toll-free help line number to cure people with mental illness through counseling. This toll free number will be launched on September 7 through virtual conferencing.
