Life Skills Training

Life Skills Training to help participants de-rust their everyday sensibilities and get comfortable once more in doing routine activities.

  • Cognitive Therapy: activities like simple accounting, measurements, the use of language etc. – designed to brush up basic intellectual abilities that are needed regularly in everyday life.
  • Creative Therapy: art, music, theatre and other forms of creative/performative activities that nurture back to life dormant imaginative faculties and constructively channelize emotional release.
  • Recreation and Relaxation Therapy: through sports, parody, mimicry sessions, feasts, outings and other fun and game items that most of us take for granted in everyday life, but institutionalized mental patients hardly get a taste of.
  • Occupational Therapy: training in vocational skills like sewing, incense-stick making, block printing, stationery production, gardening – items carefully planned to help patients with greater coordination of motor and brain functions, simultaneously helping them with skills that would help in earning.
  • Psychotherapy: group and Individual counseling to address specific needs of particular patients and improved group behaviour.
  • Economic Empowerment: selling products made by clients, the proceeds poured back into the programme, and helping reintegrated patients with employment opportunities.
  • Organizing Shelter: like short-stay homes, old age homes for reintegration-ready patients with no families to go back to/abusive families/destitute families .
  • Reconnecting with the Real World: through human contact and interface with the world outside the hospital walls, through inviting visitors/ popular icons like rock stars or matinee idols to attend ANJALI meetings, organizing outings and tea-parties in the houses of ANJALI’s friends and patrons, distributing newspapers and journals etc.
