A unique Community Mental Health initiative, started in March 1990, on the outskirts of Mumbai, in the city of Thane known for its old mental asylum, symbolic of an age when mentally disturbed people were segregated from the social main stream. This initiative of making the community aware of its 'Mental health needs', providing plans & solutions and involving community members in projects and activities is novel and path breaking. It is a place offering a wide range of services and activities for all age groups. A place where a team of dedicated professionals and community volunteers work hand in hand and new members from community get valuable education and training.
