Sanjeevani – CMHP began at the Hanuman temple complex, and then shifted to PHC level and later at community doorstep. At present Paul Hamlyn Foundation (UK) are supporting the project. Sanjeevani – CMHP (community mental health program) recognizes the stigma attached to people with psychological disability as destructive as the condition itself and gives our stakeholders a voice and confidence to interact and negotiate with family members, doctors and caregivers. We are geared towards equipping PWMI (Persons with Mental illness) to lead a life of full potential.
GASVS is working in 80 villages & Hanuman Temple of Sausar block towards making people with psychosocial disability aware of their rights and makes the government and society make the necessary shift in attitude and practice to make these rights a reality. The right to health care at home and support institutions, the right to education and training, the right to work and earn an income and above all, the right to be treated with dignity as human beings both in institutional and social spaces. Our thrust is to establish mental illness within the mainstream health paradigm and represent the marginalized people with mental illness vis-à-vis their rights to a professional and inclusive system of care and treatment.
