Blowing our own trumpet is not very easy but since there is no way out, let me try. We are a group of people, of different age group, from different educational background and different social background as well with a common goal to assist persons with mental problems and addiction and their family or spouse to lead a meaningful life. Though at the heart of the city it is adorned by beautiful flowering climbers. The interior is innovatively designed and soothingly pointed. The Doctors (Psychiatrists), Psychologists, the ward attendants and office staffs are smiling, helpful and looks after the patients round the clock. Our kitchen staff try to give a taste of individual care and attention. Our office staff and ward attendants keep a close watch individually and try to cater to every patient's particular need.
Basically, we have indoor facility for treating mental patients, drug and alcohol addicts. But it is a treatment with a difference, We take individual care. We use AYUSH along with Allopathic system of medicine and with the patients willing we take care of their long term well being.
We have singing lessons every evening. Art classes twice a week and handicraft class once a week. We hold a tea party every evening where we have tea together and interact with each other, discuss news, exchange views, celebrate birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
