Post trauma Counseling: Masina Hospital

Masina Hospital has activated a 24-hour helpline number for distress callers.

Now, that the initial and acute shock has passed, the post-terror trauma will start sinking in. In the coming days they expect a large number of callers struggling to cope up. Their psychiatrists are already handling calls from foreigners, youngsters and parents of disturbed school children. Most of their callers are in the age group of 25-30. They are utterly traumatized, nervous, often in a state of denial. The symptoms of post-terror trauma are usually numbness, guilt, refusal to make an eye contact, refusal to speak to even loved ones and so on.

Masina Hospital - 24*7 free helpline number: 022-64507171
