Jalandhar, June 25, 2020: Hans Raj Mahila Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar has taken an initiative to connect to students during times of distress through e-Sakhi app. The app was launched in January 2020. Principal Prof. Dr. (Mrs.) Ajay Sareen said that during the times of the Corona pandemic, many girl students may be facing anxiety, depression, stress and other mental health problems. Thee-Sakhi app is meant to extend a helping hand towards students sitting at home. Given the ubiquity of mobile devices, it made sense that help be provided through the mobile platform. So, through a special meeting, the mentoring in charges of the college guided the students about the emotional support available to them round the clock and at the click of just one button on their mobiles. The app was designed by Mr. Jagjit Bhatia, Associate Professor, PG Deptt of Computer Science and IT. He said that the app is very easy to download and operate and the student can get immediate help from the mentor in case of any anguish or problem. Even if the student is feeling low, the app can help students connect with the mentor. The college also has a DISHA counseling cell which is also providing e-counseling facilities during COVID-19.
