Finding Those Who Care
We find ourselves living in a world that has space for some, but forces others out due to social belief systems. People seem to care less about their fellow man, as communities choose to revolt against those who oppose their way of viewing our world, terrorism being an extreme example of this. Then there are other examples where there are two camps in strong contrast of each other on matters such as mental illness. The stigma that comes with mental illness remains to be a powerful negative attribute in all social relations, leaving those suffering from it feeling rejected and lost. This begs the question: What happens to those who need help, and where can they find it?
There is a variety of reasons and situations that can lead to a person seeking help for a mental illness. Moreover, no two situations are the same. While two people may both be diagnosed with depression, for instance, their treatments may not necessarily be the same, because not only are their personalities different, but they may also be at different stages of depression. This is where a psychiatric recovery centre can help, as professionals, such as psychiatrists, are there to assess and focus on the individual, whether they have been diagnosed with depression or schizophrenia.
At Papillon Psychiatric Recovery Centre, we realise that you might find it embarrassing to admit that you may need proper help…don’t! At our psychiatric recovery centre, you are certain to feel safe and accepted. We are South Africa’s first mental health facility to offer a complete solution for those suffering from mental illnesses, including subacute treatment. Our facility expands borders – not only on treatment, but also on a geographic level – as we offer a service that isn’t available in the UK, leading to British people coming to South Africa and choosing our facilities to get the help they need.
Looking to the UK, we find a very different approach to lifestyle compared to South Africa. There are also factors such as the weather – one that most people may not even think about, but have a great impact on our frame of mind. In recent news from the UK, Prince Harry announced that he suffers from depression – something that takes a lot of courage to admit to the whole world. The prince took a step in the right direction by acknowledging his own situation and seeking the help that he needs.
Our psychiatric recovery centre is one that anyone can turn to when they need a professional and established facility to help them. We offer programmes ranging from four weeks to six months, and accommodate for long-term assisted living facilities. We recently celebrated five years of being in the business of helping people, and can provide the necessary help on the road to recovery from mental illness in an ideal environment.
