You deserve to live!

How many times do we hear that people commit suicides. Everyday we see cases of suicidal deaths because one is not emotionally strong enough to deal with problems they are facing. 

Know anyone who is facing personal issues or basically needs someone to talk? Someone to turn to for help? Someone to ask if they are on the right track? 

Here is where SAHAI comes into force. Read on to know what they do. 

Activity: Started on 2nd Oct 2002, SAHAI is Bangalore's telephone helpline for people in emotional distress. (25497777)

 Our dedicated, trained volunteer counsellors 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 Counsellors 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 counselling.

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.

SAHAI is changing lives by telling you that your life is worth a lot more than a million and hence ending it is not the only solution. 

We might feel low sometimes and lonely and basically need someone to talk to. So its perfect to call SAHAI at times like this and deal with your situation. SAHAI is like the friend you never had!

I've always wanted to work with such an NGO and SAHAI seems to be the perfect platform. Indeed I think writing this blogpost might make a change to someone's life out there. This is the least I could do. 

Their tagline is: Life. You're worth it! I absolutely love it!
