As the lockdown continues and the new realities of working from home sets in, the mental health wellness of many has seen a stark decline. In an effort to help those struggling, Jazz Business partnered up with the Ministers Delivery Unit (MDU), Punjab Health Department and Mind Organization, a non-profit mental health care provider, to launch a COVID-19 Mental Wellbeing helpline titled “Zehni Sehat Helpline’. Those suffering from mental health issues during the ongoing countrywide lockdown can dial 0304-1110116 (Monday to Saturday 9AM-5PM), and talk to qualified psychiatrists and mental health specialists to receive support and advice. This helpline is free consultation for all callers.
Quote from the CBO: “It’s difficult for us all to understand this newly formed dynamic of life and the mental toll physical distancing from our family and friends is taking on us. Although these preventive measures suggested by the government and health authorities are important, so is mental wellbeing. This is why we are supporting Mind Organization and the Government of Punjab in providing free of cost mental health advice to millions of Pakistanis. We are here for you, to help you cope and adjust during these difficult times,” said Syed Ali Naseer, Chief Business Officer at Jazz.
