Day Center for Mental Health: It is apparent that there is a growing need for mental health services in Bangladesh. With the hospital providing inpatient services and outpatient clinics but no rehabilitation focused care to support those in transition from hospital to home, a day center for people with mental health needs and their caregivers is essential for community integration. CRP established a day center with the support of Kadoorie Charitable Foundation (KCF) with the name The “Occupational Therapy Day Centre for People with Mental Health Needs” which is located at CRP-Ganakbari, Sreepure, Ashulia, Savar, Dhaka.
This is a three years and sixmonths’ project starting from March 2018 to August 2021.The day center provides services in Multi-Disciplinary team approach. Persons with mental health needs who lost their abilities of daily living due to illness are supported to start afresh. This day centre facility helps to eliminate some of the barriers and help to reduce stigma and regain skills for daily living. We involve the clients in several meaningful and motivational activities around the clock. After the successful completion of their rehabilitation we follow them up by phone call and sometimes visit their homes.
