Sankalpa annual report-07-09-lite

  1. 1. Support for the mindProgress Report 2007 - 2009 "Past the seeker as he prayed came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten. And seeing them... he cried, Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?...... God said, I did do something. I made you.’ -- Sufi Teaching
  2. 2. Who are we Based in the city of Kolkata, India, Iswar Sankalpa is a non-profit organization founded by professionals from the field of psychological well being. We extend support, provide professional guidance and ensure sensible and sensitive services for needs of the mind Our vision and mission The founders of Iswar Sankalpa have a vision: that of ensuring dignity and holistic well being of persons with mental health problems. Our mission is to two-fold: -To lend a helping hand to those with mental health problems, particularly to those from underprivileged sections of society, and to do so in a humane manner. - To empower mental health patients in attaining their rights The organisation Naya Daur project team Governing bodyabout us Project Manager Laboni Roy Patron Smt. Rotrout Roychowdhury Psychiatrist Dr. Abir Mukherjee President Dr. Ranadip Ranjan Ghosh Roy Social workers Amrita Roy Vice President Dr. Prabir Paul Saikat Das Secretary Smt.

Kalpana Basu Mazumder Tapan Prodhan 2 The members of Iswar Sankalpa deeply regret the death of Dr. K. L. Narayanan on 10th April, 2008. Dr. Narayanan was one of the key visionaries of Iswar Sankalpa, and his untimely demise leaves a huge gap not only in the organization, but in the field of mental health in West Bengal.

  3. 3. Kolkata, the City of Joy, is also the ‘city of unending nights’ for a section ofits people, the homeless mentally ill. Crudely referred to as ‘pagol’ on thestreet, these hapless persons wander from place to place, lost to theirfamilies, ignored by welfare and health agencies, and pariahs to the rest ofsociety. No one cares to understand that these people are not ‘crazy’ - allthey have is an incommunicable mental disease, - a medical condition thatcan be reversed with medication, care and a little support.Naya This report is the chronicle of the two year journey of Iswar Sankalpa’s flagship project - Naya Daur, which takes care of Kolkata’s forgotten population. It is estimated that there are over 400,000 homelessDaur mentally ill people in India, and amongst these, over 90% have diagnosable and treatable mental disorders. Naya Daurs team of mental health professionals works within the metropolitan area of Kolkata to reach out to a segment of society that this city has forsakenThe dawn of a new era for far too long.There are no easy solutions - putting mentally ill homeless persons in a shelter and administeringpsychotropic medicines would be treating thesymptoms but not the disease.

In a resource scarceenvironment, the community model hasproven to be cost-effective - by using infrastructure and services already available with the state, otherNGOs and CBOs and individual citizens, we have been able to support a larger number of beneficiaries than 3we would have if we had followed a conventional institution-based approach.More heartening than just quantitative gains are the stories that are emerging - of Manasi and others whoselives have been renewed; of Sardar, who now chooses to stay in the community that looked after him andrefuses to return to his family; of Fulwari, one of our patient’s at Sealdah who has created a little communityof her own. And the story that humbles us all - care-givers emerging in the community - some of whom arehomeless themselves.While the successes have been many, the untimely death of Dr. K. L. Narayanan, one of the founders andkey visionaries of Iswar Sankalpa, just a year into the project has been a body blow for the team. His losshowever, has made us more determined to live up to his vision of a world where the mentally ill, whetherhomeless or other wise, are treated with the respect and compassion that is their right.This report is a tribute to his vision. Sarbani Das Roy Secretary, Iswar Sankalpa
  4. 4. Initiated in June 2007, Naya Daur is a mental health treatment project with a difference - it provides care and treatment to a population that is invisible to the rest of society the homeless mentally ill. Identification and assessment of homeless mentally ill persons The metamorphosis living on the streets of Kolkata Of Manasi In two years, we have mapped 141 wards of Kolkata, and have identified over 500 people in critical need of help. Apart from our own surveillance teams, the Kolkata Police and concerned citizens help us find homeless people who need psychiatric help, and have treated over 200 cases. While the psychiatrist assesses the clinical needs of the patient, social workers assess their support needs and locate community resources to take care of the patient. In cases where the patient is in a critical condition, our Emergency Response Unit has a specialized multi-disciplinary team to deal with the immediate crisis andour work - 2007 - 2009 transfer the patient to the appropriate agency January 2008 - when we first saw Manasi, she was a deranged terrified woman, lying Providing medical treatment, hospitalization and follow-up care semi-conscious near a garbage The first line of treatment is treating the co-morbid physical diseases heap. and injuries at general clinics / hospitals, as no psychiatric facility in the city, either state or private, will treat serious physical problems. Persons requiring hospitalization for serious mental diseases are transferred to state hospitals. If we find that the patient needs only a daily dose of medication, we ensure that the person is treated in the community space which he or she is habituated to. In such cases, we provide medication and advice to the care-giver, and make regular follow up visits for evaluation and further treatment and support. Currently, about 50 patients get food and medicines which is distributed She was brought to our camp at daily by our social workers. Another 40 persons are under the care of 66 Pally.

Taken first to Baul Mon Nursing Home, and then to Antara, she 4 Rehabilitation of the homeless person, either by restoring them to slowly responded to treatment, their families, or by re-integrating them into the community and remembered her address. Because of the debilating effect that schizophrenia and other severe diseases have on the brains cognitive faculties, many mentally ill March 2008 - Manasi returns people are on the streets simply because they are lost - theyve home to her husband and a forgotten their own names, cannot remember their families and have fulfilling family life. Our social very little idea where theyve come from - symptoms that can be usually workers visit her to top up be alleviated with medication. With treatment they gradually recover her medication their faculties and we make all efforts to repatriate these people to and check on their homes. To date, 31 patients have been restored to their families, her and another 6 have returned to work. improvement. Thirty other persons like Manasi have been restored to their families - they are homeless no more. Repatriation has been a major challenge, as many of these persons homes were in other states - Assam (2 persons), Karnataka (2), Maharashtra (1), Bihar (1), and Tamil Nadu (1). 8 persons have been from the districts of West Bengal.
  5. 5. The team comprises psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists andactivists who work with the community, hospitals, homes andshelters to bring acutely needed medical treatment those homelesspeople suffering from psychological disorders.Baseline survey and mappingWe have conducted the first baseline survey on the incidence of homelessmentally ill persons in 141 wards of Kolkata. The baseline survey hasresulted in two significant outputs - for one, we now have an idea of thedisease profile of the primary stakeholders of our project. The secondoutput is a Community Resource Map Handbook, which lists agencies andresources that are avaialble for the treatment and care of mentally illhomeless patients in all 141 wards.Advocacy with stakeholdersAdvocacy with various institutions such as the police, the judiciary,psychiatrists and doctors has resulted in influential stakeholders lendingtheir support and voice to our initiatives. More importantly, these advocacyactivites are bringing about a slow but sure change of attitude towards apopulation that has been totally excluded from society so far.Community Mental Health CommitteesThe stigma against the homeless mentally ill is born of ignorance -ignorance of the disease and its debilitating effects on the sufferer. Twomental health committees have been set up in Behala and Sealdah touphold the rights of the homeless mentally ill and to promote awarenessabout mental health in the concerned wards. Two more such committees Helpinghave been planned in the near future society findCommunity Mental Health CampsOver 750 people have been sensitized in 46 awareness camps held its lostacross the city, and have been instrumental in addressing the stigmaassociated with mental illness. These sessions are interactive, with consciencecommunity members sharing their previous experiences of social work.These camps are highly effective in identifying resource persons in the 5locality and for initiating action plans. We have busted the common misconception that the homeless mentally ill are aggressive and will turn violent if disturbed. Not one of the patients, although wary at first, have been hostile when approached - and our social workers have been training people in the community on dealing with them without fear.

  6. 6.

  8. 8. To hell and back In March 2008, Malleswari was found in Kalighat. She was a bizarre sight- a woman in her mid forties wearing a loincloth, her head smeared with vermilion, marigold garlands strung around her neck. She was thrashing the cars passing by with the branch of a tree. Suddenly a taxi driver stopped his vehicle and got down to beat her. Dr. Narayanan, who lived near witnessed the incident and intervened immediately. He brought the agitated Malleswari to his home and there she was given food, clothing and was cleaned up. She was very aggressive and muttered curses the whole day long. After informing the police, we took her to a nursing home, and then to Antara for treatment. Later she moved to Paripurnata- a rehabilitation centre. Malleswari and her son unite After about three months she began to after 6 long years recover, and we discovered that she was from Hyderabad. Through the Kolkata Police Missing Persons Squad we located her husband and young son -- the spirit within who had not seen her ever since the day she had wandered away from home in a psychotic haze six years ago On the 16th of January, 2009, a social worker from Iswar Sankalpa escorted her home and reunited her with her family. Mother and son stared at each other incessantly - it seemed for ages - until they reached out and wordlessly embraced each other. This is my family now A resident of Bishnupur in South 24 Parganas, Prabir Kumar Sardar worked as a labourer at a factory in Ballygunge. When he became mentally ill, his family shunned him, and one day he left home never to return. No one knew where he went, and his family made no attempt to 8 find him, not even to lodge a missing persons diary at the police station. He used to roam naked and eat from garbage vats in the Kalighat Tuku’s story,as reported Case studies Rashbehari area. The people used to make fun of him. Because of his in the Bartaman flowing beard, long moustache and his habit of offering prayers, locals called him Ramakrishna. A local lad, Sivaprasad Roy, developed a fondness for him and brought Sardars case to us. Today, after a year of treatment, Sardar is a changed man, with little resemblance to the ill-kempt pagol roaming the streets. He continues to live on the footpath, and takes a bath everyday at the Sulabh complex. The very locals who tormented him earlier, now take care of him. We contacted his family, who came to visit him and broke down on seeing Sardar. They wanted to take him home, but Sardar refused to leave the area. The closeness he has developed with the locals, and the neglect he suffered at the hands of his family members have forced him to stay back. Even the locals do not want to lose him. They are planning to help him open a tea stall very soon. Sardar said: “ I have no home. I want to stay here. These people are my family members”
  9. 9. The homeless mentally ill are often seen invarious states of mental distress and physicalabuse around railway stations, bus stands,pilgrim centres and on street corners. They arethe invisible people, separated from and/orabandoned by their families. The Sealdah storySealdah station, a major rail terminus in Kolkata,is one such ‘home’, as it were, for West Bengal’smigrants and displaced people. In its attempts toenforce stricter security measures, the RailwayProtection Force (RPF) is keen to clear thestation area of vagrants, but have chalked out ahumane plan to solve the problem in partnershipwith us. They have organized health camps forthose living on and around the station premises,helped us identify those in need of medical help,moved the courts on our behalf to allow us totake care of these patients, and are co-operatingwith our efforts in repatriating them back to theirhomes. Forty two year old Lalita can barely recall when she had first made Sealdah station her home. She has absolutely noThe RPF is planning to take similar steps with memories of her family and native place. She only knows sheour assistance in other stations like Dum Dum has no other place to go.and Ballygunge.Fulwari and friends - building communityMore than other homeless people who stick together in families and communities and survive by begging orworking for minimal wages, the mentally ill are the most vulnerable because they are isolated even from theother homeless. Many have some form of psychosis, and paranoia causes them to distrust others. Theyare unable to carry out basic self care, let alone protect themselves, forage for food and look after theirmeagre belongings. Many lose their memories, and wander around in a constant state of hyper vigilance.Those who have depression and other mood disorders have no motivation to look after themselves, and donot even have social or familial support to protect them from the pain in their minds. 9Sealdah station, home to the maximum number of homeless people in the city, is where an unlikely newcommunity is being born. A group of our patients, all women, have come together of their own accord, andtake care of each other. They cook together, bathe together, sleep together, and watch out for each other.One among them, Fulwari, is the leader of the team. She keeps a motherly eye over her little community,and reports to us when someone is missing or not being cooperative. When they sit down to share theirfood, one of them divides it equally and then distributes it. Even though they do not communicate well witheach other, they know that they are safe and secure - they have each other now.
  10. 10. Can someone tell me - where do I belong? We live and learn.... The challenges faced have been many - some of them requiring We set up a Drop-In- innovative responses (see box on right). Unfortunately, enthusiasm and Centre(DIC) at Sealdah where creativity can only go so far, and there are many difficulties which there are a large number of require systemic changes in order to allow us to work effectively. homeless mentally ill, intending to make it a place where our As mentioned elsewhere in this report, the physical condition of some of patients could come and collect the patients is alarming - they have open wounds, scabies, lesions and their medicine, have some food sores - and these have to be treated before giving them psychotropic and have a bath. We however medication. However, most psychiatric facilities, both private and state, had to change our strategy - have no facilities to treat physical problems, and institutions deal with many patients were reluctant to physical ailments refuse to admit mentally ill persons. A Catch-22 walk to the DIC, some refused situation. And even when we manage to beat the system and get our to let us wash their clothes patients admitted - we face the wrath of our fellow citizens - one of our because they would have to patients with bleeding head sores was summarily thrown out of a leave them behind to dry, and nursing home because the other patients objected to the smell of the many felt more secure in their pus oozing from his wounds. own surroundings even if it meant foregoing a hot meal. Often, emergency patients need to be kept in a sheltered place before we can complete the legal formalities necessary to take them into our So we now take our services to care. However, no state agency seems to be willing to take the the station premises, and responsibility of providing a transit space - the Social Welfare almost 50 people daily get their Department feels that since these are mental patients - they comethe road ahead food and medicines this way under the Health Department - and the Health Department believes that since they are homeless - they are the Social Welfare Department’s Finding a suitable sheltered responsibility. As of date, our patients are still in no-man’s land where space for DICs has been the state government is concerned. A state psychiatric facility turned difficult - we plan to experiment away 14 of our patients one night stating that they were ‘mentally with a portable DIC in areas challenged’, not mentally sick - we are grateful to the Railway Police that have a high density of our Force who were kind enough to house and feed them in the Sealdah patients - using a folding tent retirement rooms for 2 days until we found alternate homes to place that can be easily set up and them. dismantled There are other challenges to overcome - all of which need a huge amount of resources that are currently beyond our means. The absence of a transit home of our own where we can house patients10 until we transfer them to the appropriate agency continues to be an barrier in ensuring the well-being of our patients. Vulnerability is an issue that needs to be addressed urgently - most of the men fall prey to addiction, while the women remain defenseless against sexual abuse. Shyamoli, a young, mute girl One of our patients, Tuku, was visibly upset when she was given a bath being treated for schizophrenia and fresh clothes - she said that her dirty body and filthy, matted hair at Sealdah was victim of sexual kept men away - and we had taken away her only protection. abuse. She was looked after by Iswar Sankalpa throughout her The very nature of the illness has slowed down our efforts - because pregnancy and delivered a baby these patients tend to wander, finding them after the initial encounter on 2nd of March 2009.
