But, in April this year, a phone call from a familiar voice forced Jha to break from her busy routine. "Please come over, I need to talk," the caller requested. "It has to be you."
On the line was Mamta Kumari, whom Jha had helped to climb out of a dark depression during her first full-term pregnancy in 2018. Jha made a mental note to visit Kumari when she had a spare moment. She was no longer working for the mental health initiative and had enough else to do. But the calls kept coming and Kumari's pleas grew more frantic and accusatory, Jha recalls. "You don't have the time for us anymore," the mother of two would start saying before reverting to supplications for help, the two women told CNN.
