Helplines flooded with anxious calls after Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide

June 18, 2020

Since the demise of 34-year-old actor Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, suicide prevention helplines and mental heath counsellors have been inundated with anxious calls and emails. While many of the callers are those under the age of 40 investigating their own tendencies toward anxiety and depression, some are parents worried about the impact of the highly-publicised suicide case on their withdrawn children.
