My name is Manju. My son is 26 years old. He started behaving differently few years ago. On the advice of out doctor, we visited Manasa Hospital, Shvamogga. A psychologist examined him and diagnosed of having a mental health problem. He was on treatment. Everything went well and his behaviour came back to normal. But still, he was lazy, not doing his routine work and it was even difficult for him to even have a conversation with us. We got to know about Yuva Spandana Kendra and took him there.
The Yuva Samalochaka spoke to us first. I explained him about my son’s condition and his treatment. Yuva Samalochaka asked about our family, our home environment and other related information. Since our son was undergoing treatment and we were all so focused on treatment and medicines, we had forgotten to talk to him about what he is feeling. Yuva Samalochaka made us understand the importance of home environment, our behaviour towards my son. We started bringing change in the home environment and encouraged him to get better. Yuva Samalochaka was in contact with us the whole time on phone and guided us through out. I understood the importance of these aspects in recovery and treatment. Now, my son is involving himself in several household work, outside work and slowly changing. This given me immense satisfaction. We heartily thank Yuva Spandana Kendra and Yuva Samalochaka for their guidance and cooperation.
