Shant Manas conducted one week training program on Community mental health work for students of Shenbagam nursing program. More than Twenty students participated in the program and they were trained by Shant Manas social workers. Training program focused on theory and practice. The students had class room teaching on various mental health issues, treatment methods, therapies etc. They also visited various Shant manas service users’ home and interacted with service users, carers and their families.
Shant Manas Service users and Social workers visited Kuruvithurai and Anaipatti temple located near Solavanthan. More than 20 service users participated in the group tour. Service users found this trip relaxing and enjoyable as they have limited access to move out of their villages. Service users mixed with others well and supported each other. Shant Manas decided to take service users for outing once in 2 months. This group is supported by Mr. John Campbell. So it is called as ‘Campbell’s group’.
