Akshay Kumar has continued his incredible philanthropic efforts during the coronavirus by promoting the government’s ‘1 on 1’ initiative to address mental health issues currently being experienced by the pandemic.
Introduced by the Maharashtra government and the BMC, ‘1 on 1’ is a scheme aimed at encouraging people to seek help during this difficult period. Through the given helpline number, people can contact and speak one to one with a mental health professional and share their concerns, fears, anxieties and ask any other questions at a time in which many may not have anyone they feel they can turn to.
Akshay Kumar, who has lent his support along with other stars such as Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgn, encouraged people to contact the number to help clear their minds
Sharing with his 34M followers, the Sooryavanshi star, posted:
