One of Shant Manas service user Mrs.Rekha w/o.Kameswaran
Rekha is a female aged 30, married, living in Achampathu village has one son aged 13 years living in our catchment areas has getting well from Chronic Schizophrenia after a lot of efforts taken by ShantManas. She married her maternal uncle. But unfortunately her husband, who was mentally ill 3 years ago is not willing to take treatment, is now relapsed severely and admitted in the care center.
He is an alcoholic and drug user. Rekha doesn’t even know how to manage herself. When her husband was with her he was suspecting her and not allowed her to open the doors and windows. All the time she was inside the small house. Now her insight is good, she is under anti-psychotic medicines. ShantManas is taking maximum efforts to rehabilitate Rekha by giving activities, motivating her to involve in the domestic work, encouraging her to improve her communication with the society.
Now ShantManas is trying to socialize her in all the aspects. Now her husband is in the care center, her son is in the school hostel and her younger brother is mentally challenged with psychosis is admitted in the care center. Her parents are not taking care of her. Only her brother-in-law who is living in the upstairs of her house is supporting her morally and financially. Her grandpa cum father–in-law is living with her. ShantManas is monitoring her mental health treatment and helping her to get good mental health.
Shantmanas is supporting her by providing free medicines and offering moral supportive counseling. Her life was very miserable when she came to Shant Manas, but now she is well improved and has good self motivation. She is waiting for her son when he will come for his summer vacation. She always remembers her husband, she is missing her husband. She was tearful when she remembers her husband. However, ShantManas had a strong hope that she will recover with her life soon.
ShantManas is playing a major role in supporting her with constant reviews & monitoring along with timely mediaction.
