Sponsor the cost of psychiatric medicines for treatment of a Mentally Ill poor person, INR 900

Vikash is a voluntary organization based in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. It was founded in 1986 and is actively working in 14 underdeveloped districts of Odisha, covering over one million individuals. Its aim is to build self-reliant tribal and rural communities by educating children, providing livelihood opportunities and supporting people with disability.

How It Works

• With regards to working with people with disabilities, one of the programmes Vikash has been involved in is the community-based support to persons with mental illness in the Puri and Khordha districts of Odisha.
• Under this programme, Vikash provides medicines for psychiatric treatment of mentally ill patients.
• These patients fall below the poverty line and hence, cannot afford to buy the medicines.
• If they do not take medicines, not only will their physical and mental condition deteriorate, but also their interaction with the society. Thus, it is very essential that they take their medicines regularly in order to live a physically and socially healthy life.

Gadadhar Behera
He lives in Khetrapala village of Khurda district. His father Pasuram Behera had one son and one daughter. His parents are daily workers. When Gadadhar was 10th standard he reads very well. He went to give examination there due to physical unfitness his exam was not up to satisfaction. After returning home he was mentally disturbed and finally became mentally ill. His mother keeps sheep for grazing but one day the sty was lit by fire and all the sheep also died. His sister was also divorced by her husband, so she returns to home with her 3 children.
Vikash identified Gadadhar Behera in the year 2011and gave him medicinesas per doctor’s advice.We did counseling to take regular medicines and took him to a psychiatrist for regular check up.Vikash made regular follow-up by our field workers called MRWs.
After regular use of medicines he recovered steadily. Now there is a remarkable change in his health and activity. He does all his ADLS work himself. He peacefully co-operate with his family members and friends. He behaves normally with people surrounding him.
