Unlike other psychiatric set ups, VIMHANS is now equipped with a special “Occupational Therapy unit” which has trained personnel managing it.
A major part of psychiatric treatment involves rehabilitation and integration of patients back into the society. This is one of the biggest challenges faced by mental health professionals. Through “Occupational Therapy”, we engage our patients and help them become more productive.
Activities done in Occupational Therapy:
- Group therapy for those with alcohol dependence
- Play therapy
- Reading, painting, gardening
These activities keep them occupied and happy while in hospital and empower them to face the challenges of life once they are out.
OT is taken care of by Miss Shweta, M.Sc (psychiatric Nursing)
