Vishal, the President of Producers Council and the Secretary of the Nadigar Sangam has been associated with a number of social causes for quite some time. He is someone who is the first to give his voice for many of the social causes and recently he has joined hands with The Narayana Group for ‘The Disha Helpline’ initiative, which is a toll free number for students to help them deal with their mental health issues. A video that has been released on this, features the actor speaking to the students.
In the awareness video, Vishal talks in Telugu and it talks about how shocking it is to hear about children committing suicide and the high numbers of children meeting such a tragic end. Vishal goes on to add how the Disha Helpline will help these children by giving professional help for their bright future. It is common knowledge that children, especially students facing poor results in examinations tend to take drastic decisions. Also, this helpline will be useful for those children who are not able to freely communicate emotional issues to their parents due to the generation gap. Here's the video:
Talking about how children can benefit from this initiative, Vishal said, “It’s advisable that by reaching the expert counselors and mental health professionals, this crisis can be solved leading to a peaceful life and future of children.” It is indeed such a timely video especially at a time when exams are just round the corner. Kudos Vishal!
