These are moments in life when you feel the journey so far has been worthwhile but you do not want to continue any more. Those subtle moments when the will power breaks and shatters, moments when you feel the world is not a good enough place to be, moments of anxiety and anger, moments of sadness and dry laughter.
In these anxious moments when the only ray of hope is not be there anymore, are the ones when you need that warm hug, that affectionate smile and that pat on the back. You need the assurance that things will get fine. You need someone to say ‘They will get fine’. Some of us are lucky to have friends and family around in those shattered moments and we run through that rough phase emerging successfully at the end. Some of us are not so lucky.
Today, SAHAI is helping to make each child, each Parent, each woman and each man lucky.
HISTORY THE SAHAI WAY: HOW AND WHAT
Activity: Started on 2nd Oct 2002, SAHAI is Bangalore's telephone helpline for people in emotional distress. Our dedicated, trained volunteer counselors are available to answer your calls between 10.00 a.m. & 6.00 p.m., from Monday through to Saturday.
All calls are confidential and privacy is assured.
Whether it is facing problems with your family, in school, at work or with your friends,Sahai Counselors will give you their undivided attention and will guide you. And, when you're ready, SAHAI will help you find a long-term solution to your problems, through telephone counseling. Sahai volunteers will help and equip you with the skills, needed to cope with distressing situations of life like loss, failure, broken relationships or the ever-increasing demands of today's fast-paced life.
SAHAI volunteers are homemakers, professionals and college students - people from all walks of life who are committed to saving lives. SAHAI volunteers undergo 30 hours of suicide prevention training conducted by professionals from NIMHANS and the Medico Pastoral Association, along with Rotary Bangalore East, three of the help line's founding partners.
Volunteers are trained to help each caller ventilate, to respond without judging, and to guide the caller to address their problem. Volunteers learn how to listen pro-actively, and to recognize and assess signs of stress and depression.
