An initiative of OMPHI Foundation, Psychologists for India is an organized group of over 150 passionate and trained psychologist volunteers who have joined hands to provide free of cost mental health support during the COVID-19 pandemic. The volunteers are skilled in diverse domains of mental health and hold varying levels of expertise.
Through this helpline we provide safe, empathetic and non-judgemental yet active listening to individuals who may be experiencing a range of difficult emotions. We provide an interim and immediate support and guidance in times of crisis and help the individual in cases of life risk to reach out to more adequate support systems.
Our major focus is on the Indian workforce and its mental well-being but are also receiving calls from anyone in need.
India has a total workforce of 52 crore individuals. 20% or 10 crore individuals are migrant workers and 90% of the total workforce are in the informal sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disturbances in the physical, psychological, social, and financial well-being at individual as well as community levels.
Since our inception in March 2020, we have made a significant impact and are helping the average Indian worker better manage their mental health. We thank all our volunteers and collaborators for their efforts.
