The TRU mental health community workers go to each village and identify people suffering from mental illnesses to provide them with free treatment. TRU also organizes various events on mental health awareness in these regions. The mental health caregivers play a critical role in ensuring timely treatment to the patients, and therefore in their rehabilitation. The goal of the TRU mental health program is to rehabilitate patients in their homes and workplaces, rather than putting them through institutional treatment process.
