Call Me Today to provide psychosocial supports to blue-collars, residing in suburbs in Myanmar
On May 14 2021, Call Me Today has signed with one European INGO for providing psychosocial supports via tele-counselling methods. This project is funded by the Livelihood and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT). This project lasts for 8 months. The beneficiaries are blue-collars of both genders and their families.
Kyaw Zin, the founder of Call Me Today, says “We are so proud to provide mental health support again to this community which we were providing psychosocial supports one year ago. It was the response to the COVID-19 and now it is the response for all the current situation in Myanmar.”
Myanmar mental health situation is critical and helps from different sources should be made as soon as possible. While the blue colours and white colours are facing poverty and anxieties and almost all youths are suffering trauma and depression from joblessness, griefs and hopelessness for their careers, education and their dreams. On the other side, mental health supports are in need of refugees.
Call Me Today is the first Myanmar non-profit mental health helpline since 2018. We fight for inaccessible counselling by providing free, instant and reliable mental health services nationwide. Call Me Today has served over 1000 clients at the present.
