AMEND also provides:

  • Information on benefits and entitlements for Persons with Mental Ilness (PMI) in Karnataka
  • Training program and group sessions for member families
  • Personal calls and enquires are handled
  • Introduction to Therapists

AMEND provides a very important service to the soceity by supporting the family members of mental illness patients as they have to cope with the daya to day life of the PMI nd also the rest of the family within our society norms.
