We visited several centres to treat my sister’s psychosis, among them Nityanand is the best. Patient used to stop medicines due to their reaction. In Nityanand, medicines dose is set as per patient condition and fear of medicines is removed due to which patient is now regular in taking medicines. Here, Doctors and Counsellors are friendly & easily available. In family meeting, discussion of family, patient, doctor, counsellor does help a lot to understand where as a family we are going wrong. Other remedies used in centre e.g. music therapy are also effective.
Through this video, Mr & Mrs Somani share their experience of fighting battle against mental illness. Mrs. Somani shares how showing courage to seek treatment has worked for her husband and her family’s life itself. They sought professional help and guidance from Nityanand Rehabilitation & Residential Mental Health Care Centre, Pune in 2002. During treatment he benefitted from medicine management, counselling, group therapy and also psychoeducation for family and himself. Since then Mr. Somani has been consistent with OPD follow ups and shows great recovery.
This is a great example of how acceptance, care and support along with right kind of treatment can make life better for those who suffer from mental illnesses.
