There are a very few counselling centres in India for cancer. why? How can we bring about a change?

Cancer Counselling in India

How can we bring about a change? We feel that there is a lack of awareness amongst the common man about the need and availability of counseling to begin with. Most people are either not aware of counseling services or are skeptical about discussing their problems and seeking solutions from counselors. Patients and the care-givers at times, are at a loss of information, support & advice, which can be provided by counselors. When the counselors speak a vernacular language, it would make the patients and care-givers feel comfortable and understood. Their socio-psychological problems can then be attended to.

In India, there is a dearth of cancer counseling centres and inadequate information about resources for patients suffering from cancer and their care givers. Having realised this, Madat Trust decided to alleviate this shortfall and start this FREE service to make it easier for the patients and their care-givers. The service can be accessed from anywhere using a phone and internet. The information provided on our website answers most common queries of the patients and for other specific psycho social problems they can call up our counseling helplines at their convenience.
