Big bullet   Angels at Work - Kshitij Mental Health Centre

Therapy dog Angel in a group therapy session at Kshitij Mental Health centre

Kshitij Mental Health Centre, a project of the Family Welfare Agency works with recovering mentally ill clients. Kshitij has a day care centre with rehabilitation facilities for the recovering mentally ill through occupational therapy, individual and group counseling, family support group, sheltered workshop and pharmacological treatment.

Our therapy dogs work at Kshitij in group sessions with the clients. She helps them improve their social and verbal skills. Through various group activities that involve therapy dogs, the clients have also increased their self-confidence and self-esteem. Receiving unconditional love and affection from therapy pets enables the clients to be more at ease in expressing themselves, especially emotionally.
