Jharkhand's oldest school for mentally disabled students to get free monthly counselling
Students from the School of Hope in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, will now get a free monthly consultation from a psychiatrist.
The free service will be provided by an expert from the MGM Medical College and Hospital.
The School of Hope is Jharkhand's oldest centre for children with special needs.
A free medical camp was held this month by a team of paediatricians from the hospital. The success of the camp led school authorities to request for free psychiatric help for its children.
Now a free psychiatric counselling session will be held every month in the school.
Experts have said that the counselling will have a positive effect on the children and help them develop well.
Children with learning disabilities, obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and cardiac problems at the school need psychiatric counselling.
