Therapeutic Residence Comprehensive Program for mental health
It is a comprehensive program for mental health that since 2006 has offered a space for counseling, care and health promotion for adults with various mental illnesses. The inclusion in the spaces can be achieved through different participation modalities. It focuses not only on group organizations: art workshops, labor, assemblies, etc., but also in the individual clinical follow-up and support to each participant and its relevant affective group.
The compass that guides all work within Maón Tipulí is the ethics, the accompaniment for the creation of new social bonds that allow to those who participate in each of the areas, to find something unique, with its own mark that facilitates in this way to stop the suffering and psychic overflow.
It consists of a series of interviews with the aim of identifying the interests and necessities of the person who requires a consultation and then to guide and refer, not only inside but also outside of the device.
Individual and Family Clinical Monitoring
Frequent interviews are conducted with all participants, either for those who are included in the groups and for those keeping an individual contact with the program. The direction of treatment is agreed jointly.
Workshops and group spaces
The following art workshops are currently being offered: Musical composition, percussion and guitar seminar; Writing and Reading; plastic and visual arts, theater and movement. Each group has double coordination: psychological and artistic or technical. The inclusion in the different spaces is agreed, after admission, between the participant and the coordination team.
We conducted the opening of a space dedicated to the reading of the new National Act of Mental Health (Act N°26.657). In addition, we hold a monthly Coexistence Assembly which offers participants and coordinators a democratic space for making decisions about coexistence and working together.
We have a space or living room called “Moadón”. Another group spaces are “Shiurim”. During the summer we offer Special Thematic Workshops and Seminars. Moreover, we take trips to different social and cultural spaces in the city. In December, the Annual Show takes place, where all the productions are shared.
This resource is used for crisis intervention, hospital discharge processes, or working on a specific therapeutically indicated aspect. The team of therapeutic companions is trained and supervised by the program. It is worked with the network of different relevant figures involved.
Inter Institutional networking
It is encouraged the development, growth and articulation with organizations from different sectors: State, private and social organizations with the decision to effectively hold a participation modality in the social sphere. With each person that enters the program, detailed work it is carried out, contacting the different social and health professionals that are connected with the treatment.
