Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus. The lockdown situation has caused people to undergo different emotional periods. For some it has brought about happiness and for others, it has become a stressful time as they are unable to get out of their houses.

Few people are happy as they are able to spend time with their family members. Others are pressured into thinking that will they lose their job, and some are always worried about whether they will get infected by coronavirus. People are filled with different problems during the lockdown and they have a lot more time now to think and worry about it.

How can these issues be solved?

Just dial 080-46659999 for the perfect answer. Bengaluru based People Tree Maarga is offering free counselling to people during these lockdown days.

Dr Satish of People Tree Maarga told Asianet Newsable that the free counselling is an initiative by a group of highly skilled, specialised and experienced psychiatrists and mind care experts, trained in some of the best hospitals in the world. People Tree Maarga has an integrated service profile providing specialised, holistic care for all age groups and all types of mind care services like adult psychiatry, old age, child psychiatry, de-addiction, psychosexual medicine, sleep disorders, psychotherapies, biological therapies, day-care services, acute and emergency care with state-of-the-art Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit, complete with seclusion facility and rehabilitation services in Yelahanka, Bengaluru.

He added that the people struggling from stress can call up them at any time and they will be e-assigned expert psychiatrists, therapists or counselling psychologists.

Working people more stressed:

Satish said that the team has been receiving calls mostly from working-class people. They are mainly concerned about two issues. One is, will they be infected by coronavirus or their family? Secondly, how the post coronavirus situation can affect their lives.

Are children happy at home?

The counselling centre had received only a single call from a parent of a 7-year-old. The children are stressed as they are unable to get out of house and go to school. But parents can help them in this stage, by giving them more attention and time.

Old people the happiest:

Aged people are the happiest ones in the lockdown days as they get more time with their children and grandchildren. Many would idly sit at home when their children were at work and grandchildren in school.
