HEED INDIA (Health Education, Environment and Development of India) is located in Trichy and works for mentally ill people. They run Kangaroo Home for mentally ill people.

NEED OF THE PROJECT
The poor parents are unaware of caring for mentally ill children/youth. Hence, they are isolated, ignored, and considered a burden at home and in society. Such abandoned youth need full rehabilitation, which is managed by HEED through Kangaroo Home.

PROJECT SCOPE 
Currently, in Kangaroo Home, 38 mentally ill persons are housed with nutritious food, clothing, medical care, and psychiatric counselling services through qualified counsellors. Out of 38, moderately recovered persons are involved in envelope making, parcel cover making, plastic wire bag making, and incense stick packing. In addition, more than 70% of recovered persons from mental illness are placed in suitable placements, which will allow them to reunite with their families.

Bureau Veritas has committed to HEED to take care of the One-Year expense of such 50 mentally ill people in Kangaroo Home. The project is part of our gender equality and inclusion goal.
