Kashmir lockdown limits people’s access to mental healthcare

Doctors are now warning that India’s recent move revoking autonomy in Indian-administered Kashmir and its security lockdown are limiting people’s access to mental healthcare services.

The security lockdown in Indian-administered Kashmir continues for nearly two months.

Now doctors say the crackdown is causing stress and anxiety in people, while also limiting their access to mental healthcare services.
