Halfway homes for mentally ill get cold response from NGOs
| Wednesday | 14th August, 2019
"The home will be a boon for the patients and their families," said Jalaja S, assistant director, Directorate of Social Justice.
Once these halfway homes are set up, we would be able to shift some patients there.
The main issue is even after the treatment, the patients are not getting discharged," said T Sagar, consultant psychiatrist.
Rather than live a restricted life, patients will be able to interact normally with their family members.
Counselling sessions are also given to the patient's family.
