Manav Foundation works with a vision of inclusion by widening the horizons of mental health to ensure its recognition, importance, and acceptance as a necessary component of society. The Foundation offers therapy and rehabilitation to their beneficiaries.

Their interventions include clinical evaluation, medication, counselling, psycho-social rehabilitation, after-care, vocational training, and skill building. These services are implemented via programs listed here:

  • Manav Rehabilitation Centre (MRC): The centre has been established to provide rehabilitation services to adults recovering from mental illness such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and other illnesses of such nature. It is run by a technical, administrative, and a paraprofessional team. Apart from a sliding fee structure that takes into consideration each individual client’s economic status, MRC provides financial aid, medicines, nutritious food, bus/train travel passes to those in need. They organize occupational therapies through activities like kitchen skills, daily living skills, arts and crafts; group therapies like dance, music, Bowen therapy, and animal assisted therapy; and vocational therapies like self-defense.
  • Manav Counselling Centre (MCC): The Foundation’s counselling unit offers services to individuals who, not due to mental illness, but more because of temporarily compromised coping skills and capacity, are not able to deal with the demands of their daily lives.  Counselling is provided to such persons at fees affordable to them. Even at the MCC, occupational therapies like kitchen, daily living skills, arts and crafts; and group therapies like dance, music, Bowen therapy, and animal assisted therapy are organised.
  • Swayam: Swayam is a vocational training programme which aims to provide skills like basic business acumen, marketing, sales, and production activities to individuals recovering from mental illness. The programme also has an ‘internship’ phase where ‘clients’ are provided an opportunity to undergo practical training in areas of their vocational interest. The products made include chocolates, chocolate boxes, candles, diyas.
  • Sahyog: Sahyog is a platform which aims to support and empower the coping capacities of the care givers of the mentally ill. Well-being of the caretaker is very important in the rehabilitation process of the patients.
