Visit to Sambandh Society, Gurgaon
The B.Sc. and M.Sc students of the Faculty visited Sambandh Foundation, Gurgaon on 27th January 2016. This rehabilitation centre is home to mentally challenged persons, who are suffering from bipolar and schizophrenic disorders. The students observed that family environment, provided to the inmates, creates a congenial environment for their rehabilitation. The in-house patients are actively engaged in day to day activities, like welcoming the guests and interacting with them. The inmates presented a play on the issues faced by mentally challenged people and how the society should address their concerns. The Centre presents the best example of psycho-social model of treatment in a family setting. The visit was very useful for the students in terms of experiential learning.
