Psychosocial Response of KOSHISH during COVID-19 pandemic
By Sangam Chhetri - Program Officer
The outbreak of COVID-19 and continuous fear of transmission of the disease have affected the psychosocial well-being of all the people. The cases are increasing in Nepal as well. Within a week of the beginning of lockdown, KOSHISH realized the need for psycho-social support during this pandemic situation especially to the persons who are already experiencing mental health conditions.
For that purpose, KOSHISH sought financial support for the establishment of a toll-free number and recruitment of psychologists to provide free Psychological First Aid and Tele-counseling services. KOSHISH was able to receive the project-based funding which aided to run the toll-free number through which the free counseling services have been running smoothly.
So far, 1024 persons have provided mental health and psychosocial support during this COVID-19 pandemic situation.
