Media Matters for Democracy is all set to launch ‘Dastgir’ a mental health support service for Pakistani journalists

Media Matters for Democracy is all set to launch Dastgir, an online mental health counseling service for Pakistani journalists. The service is based on a subscription model and will use the Sehat Kahani telemedicine smartphone application for service delivery.

Journalists who apply for the service will get access to psychologists and licensed therapists. They will be able to schedule consultations to seek help and guidance about their work-related stress and emotional well-being.

Dastgir will be formally launched today, and journalists can subscribe to the service on a first-come-first-served basis.

Interested journalists can apply to use the service using our Google form on the Dastgir page below. See the details here
