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

Director Welcome Message

dale-finHello and welcome to Athma Shakti Vidyalaya Society, a non-profit residential therapeutic community that has been providing services in the field of mental health and rehabilitation through a holistic and therapeutic community approach for more than three decades. I’m happy you’ve chosen to visit our website and learn more about our treatment programs. You may probably be aware of young, bright, intelligent, promising youngsters whose lives have suddenly been totally thrown off track due to mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorder etc.  It is our experience at ASV, since its inception in 1979, that these youngsters can be rehabilitated through a process of education that involves teaching them to be aware of their thoughts and feelings and to take responsibility to find useful and healthy options to express the same.  These illnesses can also occur later, when, despite having all the required qualifications, the person breaks down when their coping mechanisms – the ability to deal with stress, both external and internal causes them to unconsciously “choose” to lose touch with reality.  This, as you will understand, is a huge setback not only to the person, but to the family as well.  It is our sincere hope that we can help you, your friend or your family member. Our approach offers mindfulness-based therapeutic skills and recovery oriented treatment, while living in the surrounding community.

With over 35 years of experience in helping people overcome their illnesses, I believe Athma Shakti Vidyalaya leads the way in restoring hope, dignity and self-respect to our clients and their families, empowering them with the skills to choose a healthy lifestyle.

I encourage you to read through our website and support us in our journey.

Thank you.

Dale Peacock | Director
