Mentally ill people need special care. People consider mentally ill patients as a social stigma and practice discrimination.
Since the last 3 years, Neptune Foundation has been providing psycho-social rehabilitation services. It tries to reach to the roots of trauma that such patients might have undergone. A study shows that there are around 1 lakh destitute in Mumbai city alone. They are from various parts of India. Most of them come to Mumbai looking for work but not all are fortunate enough to find one and end up in a life full of misery. Once they run out of the little money they had begun with, they are deprived of food and many other basic necessities and become vulnerable to difficulties. Such situations can lead to grave psychological complications.
