  • Home Again - Shared Housing


    Ashadeep initiated the ‘shared housing’ programme by doing away with the Navachetana (Rehab) facility and setting up 6 independent homes paving the way from the institutional pattern of rehabilitation to a more inclusive community setting.

    The shared home is a concept where four to five people live in a home. Every home is monitored by a healthcare worker. There are no routines or disciplines imposed upon them and they are provided with the necessary amenities required in a house.

  • Rehabilitation of Homeless Persons With Mental Illness

    Homeless persons with mental illness wandering on the streets are admitted in the two homes viz. 'Navachetana' for women and 'Udayan' for men. They are provided with care, treatment and psycho-social interventions including vocational training. When they recover from the acute symptoms of their illness and attain some functionality level and are able to provide their home address, they are taken back home and re-united with their families. So far 1079 persons have been admitted and out of that 1007 have been discharged and re-integrated with their families across the length and breadth of the country.
