 United with her children
Vinita (name changed) was admitted to Calcutta Pavlov centre on 30th September by her husband. Her mental problems started when she became adamant to construct a house. She had a tendency to quarrel with the neighbours and often became violent. She was brought to Paripurnata on 25th January 2012. There are instructors for Art, Sewing, Weaving, Block Printing etc. They conduct classes in their field on vocational/occupational skills (more as a therapy) according to a structured routine. The care givers work in round-the-clock shifts and supervise all activities - rising, PT, personal hygiene, grooming, cleaning their dormitories etc. They supervise cooking and serving meals, dispensing medicines, accompanying Residents for outings, diagnostics etc. Vinita was provided pharmacotherapy and counseling gradually. In the beginning she was not keen to participate in the various activities, but by and by she began taking interest in the rehab process. She was anxious to go back home. She was assured that we would trace her relatives and bring them to Paripurnata. Our Psychiatric Social Worker traced her house and met her two sons. The husband was not home. However her sons visited her first on 30th April 2012. They took her home for an exposure on 24th June 2012 for a few days. At present she is stable mentally and counting days to go home. In all probability she will be discharged from Paripurnata on October 19, 2012, to be with the family for the Pujas.
 Changing attitude of the family
Ms. Chaya Das 40 years old married woman having three daughters & a son. Her husband was suffering from mental illness. She had to struggle a lot to treat the husband and to take care of the children. She tried to provide good education to them and was taking care of every thing alone as there was no other social support. Being unable to deal with stressful situation she becomes mentally ill. She was suspicious, disruptive and she had violent behaviors towards children. She was admitted to the Calcutta Pavlov Hospital and was there around 2 years along with her husband. As both the parents were in the hospital, so growing children were in very pathetic condition. She was then brought to Paripurnata Half Way Home for Psycho-social Rehabilitation. During 1 year stay in Paripurnata, she improved through various kinds of psychosocial and recreational interventions, social skills training and group sessions helped her in acquiring good skills which is necessary for family living. Considering their past experiences the children were reluctant to accept her initially. But after seeing her improvement the children’s attitude has been changed. Now the couple is leading a very happy life & the children have a tremendous caring attitude towards their parents.
