The strongest contribution to mental health would be the preventive application of yoga in society in general, given what we know about the excellent benefits of yoga practice on risk factors for psychiatric conditions. It is clearly more cost-effective and efficacious to prevent mental health diseases, than to treat them once they have manifested as clinically significant conditions.
At MAARGA day hospital, we provide day treatment centre and day hospital services where support, supervision and monitoring for users in transition between hospitalization and life at home. It is a source of long-term structure and support for those with chronic handicaps, preferably in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The components of support include crisis interventions, relapse prevention, improving social competence, fostering social networks, and coordination of care. For some users, the day care centre is a site for short-term focused rehabilitation or for relatively brief intensive therapy (Holloway, 1988). Day care is a cost-effective way of monitoring patients’ progress and ensuring they maintain well. It is a viable option for long-term management in the community of persons with chronic psychiatric disabilities, who are symptomatically less acute and have greater long term social or vocational problems.
