Background: Human suffering and future uncertainty due to extended lockdown is enormous and this is much more among migrant workers.
Aim: The aim of this study was to design and utilize a model for psychosocial intervention for migrant workers during the extended lockdown.
Materials and Methods: In Chandigarh, due to lockdown, 61 migrant workers from various states were lodged in a shelter home at village Maloya, located in the outskirt of Chandigarh. Since no specific model was available to handle the psychosocial issues of this specific population, hence, an attempt was made to prepare a model for psychosocial intervention using Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
Results: Changes in infrastructure and facilities provided to migrant workers due to implementation of this model for psychosocial intervention helped the participants seeing beyond their problems.
Conclusion: Psychosocial intervention model based on Maslow's theory was found suitable for migrant workers in shelter home in Chandigarh.
