Pre-emption of a possible future crisis on the already victimized families of Maharashtra, is now a prime concern for Bharatiya JainSanghatana (BJS). To this end, BJS has worked out a plan for the creation, development and the sustainability of a Mental Health support system at WERC towards ensuring the psycho- social well-being of this extremely vulnerable group of children. 'Manthan', the programme on mental health, will aim to contribute towards the achievement of some of the critical outcomes of the larger project i.e. to nurture a positive attitude in these children for enabling them to become productive and responsible members of the society and also to help increase their educational and general outcomes through a focused improvement in their physical as well as mental health.
