Rehabilitation of behaviors regarding patients with epilepsy as well as mental health concerns

We are working toward rehabilitation of epileptic behaviors/attitude of attendance and socially-connected people with patients of epilepsy, as well as other people with mental health struggles, which can be beneficial for treatment of patients with epileptic and mental disorders. Up to this time, the organization has survived on its own efforts as well as local funding resources. In this regard, different literature influencing on behaviors, leaflets, booklets, and brushers are also being published through the organization by its limited resources. About 50 gatherings/workshops have been conducted in the surroundings of the District Shaheed Benazir Abad (Nawabshah) in which 5,000 people/attendees were informed about the post rehabilited/cure from epilepsy and mental stress/disorders, as well as about the social behavior which can help the patients to be healthy.
