Addressing crisis in youth

The SDRF has started a round-the-clock helpline which will be addressing a wide range of mental health issue that the youth are currently facing. The helpline is a wonderful initiative and has got various elements that are making it stand out as it will work on various levels at a time.

The manpower has been provided by the SDRF which has got its personnel well trained and at the same time, the added guidance will be provided by the doctors. While that has been done, the nature of calls will also be gauged and categorized into different categories.

The initiative will also try to address the needs and issues of the youth who are suffering from various mental health issues due to the financial crisis that have cropped up due to the COVID-19 lockdown. This side of the problem will be handled by the Mission Youth of J&K. The financial issues are found in the majority of youngsters and by trying to address the same, the initiative taken is going to bring about a larger change if carried out successfully.

The key here remains that more and more people come to know about the helpline that has been started so that more and more people come to the front and are benefitted.

There is a need for the Government to give wider publicity to the helpline and persuade the youngsters facing such issues to seek medical help by dialling up the helpline number and at the same time, more needs to be done for the betterment of the youth post-pandemic.
