What is Mental health?
A person’s psychological and emotional well-being which enables an individual to carry out life’s daily routine and cope with normal stresses is classified as a person’s sound mental health.
However, not all individuals may be blessed with that capability. There may be a gap when a person feels unable to work productively and contribute effectively to the community.
How Karwan-e-Hayat helps
We provide consultation, hospitalization, medicines and meals at highly subsidized rates or free of cost to 90% of patients being treated.
Our aim is to ensure that patients receive:
- Quality medication to control symptoms of circumstantial influences or chemical imbalances in the brain;
- Therapy and counselling to ease the mentally ill patients’ violent behaviour and in many cases, suicidal tendencies; and
- Rehabilitation to achieve functionality
When a patient walks in to Karwan-e-Hayat, she or he is ensured a sensitive support, keeping in mind the long and arduous journey the patient has undertaken to finally seek medical help.
Karwan-e-Hayat operates from three locations in Karachi:
The Psychiatric Care and Rehabilitation Centre (PCRC) is Karwan-e-Hayat’s flagship centre.
This is Karwan-e-Hayat’s first OPD clinic that was opened in 1984. It offers OPD and pharmacy services to mentally ill patients.
The Korangi Community Psychiatry Centre (KCPC) was established in last quarter of 2011 in a collaborative Mental Health Project, with partners like AMAN Foundation, HANDS, PAMH and i-Care Foundation.
