Our Success Rate

ASV has a fairly good success rate – approximately 60 – 70% of residents are fully rehabilitated ie are able to lead a normal life and join the main stream of society; get employment, marry and have their own families. 20 to 25% are able to independently take care of themselves and engage in part time work; 10 – 15% leave before completing their treatment.

Unique Features

We collaborate closely with the client and family to design each person's program individually and activities are arranged to respect individual needs and interests. We use only optimum dosage of medication. We believe that people with mental illness can be taught to be aware and take responsibility for themselves, hence we need them to be less sedated. Because of this we use innovative methods when management becomes a problem & are not quick to hospitalize them. Therefore, we are able to accommodate residents from an acute phase to full recovery. Our staff resident ratio is almost 1:1

2014

ASV staff, clients, parents and well-wishers – all came together as one community and participated in celebrating WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY on 10th October at ASV premises. The ASV team felt supported and heard in their journey to heal and help the mentally ill. Thanks to all our speakers – Dr Srinivas Reddy, Usha, Parents – Martine Traks, Dr Bhagawati and our ex kids Namrata and Nicky. It was a fun-filled day with song, dance, testimonies, games, much laughter and a shared meal. A special mention to the dance troupe who performed ‘Jade Kollata’ – each one of you was superb! Special thanks to Aishwarya for training them to such a high level of perfection. Thanks also to Tanya, the youngest in our community, for writing, composing, directing and singing the song titled, “It’s World Mental Health Day”, and for those lovely posters created by our kids with Umesh’s guidance. Thanks to each and everyone one of our staff – clinical and non-clinical – this would not have been possible without your support and great effort. A BIG THANK YOU TO FRIENDS, FAMILIES & WELLWISHERS who took time off to be a part of our celebrations and making it a grand success. Sharing a few photos of our event, and, once again wish to announce our new website: www.athmashaktividyalayasociety.org. Look forward to your continued support.
