Training Institute for Mentally Challenged/Slow learners or Psychiatric Patients
A person with Intellectual disability (Mental Retardation) is one the most challenging of diseases in the field of mental health care. At Mind Management Institute we have decided to take the challenge and help patients to lead a fruitful, respectful life and share responsibilities with family leading to independent life. In this programme we provide both habilitation and rehabilitation for better community reintegration.
Every person deserves the chance to utilize his or her full potential. Our aim is to help every individual to achieve it.
This project is under direct supervision of Dr Jaideep Patil (MBBS MD Psychiatry). We have a dedicated staff to take care of patients physical and psychological needs. For medical issues we have visiting physicians.
We are mainly focusing on individualised therapy which will include a detailed assessment of the individual for current status and specific plan for improvement in problem areas. Along with that therapeutic group therapies, role play, music, play and art therapies. We take care that it should not be a burden and unpleasant for the patient.
The treating team consists of psychiatrists, clinical psychologist, physiotherapist, nurses and physicians to provide a holistic care treatment module. The psychiatrist provides medication that is absolutely necessary. The psychiatric medications will be given only if parents agree for such treatment.
All the staff is trained for neuro behavioural model therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, psycho dynamic therapy and behavioural therapy, and will be under continuous supervision.
We do have hostel (residential) facility for those who wish to opt for it. Hostel is for those patients from other cities or due to other difficulties in transportation or who need it as a therapeutic need. The basic living facility varies from a single AC room to a shared room for three patients. We do have separate male and female sections with best possible security arrangements.
