Dreams of turning point:


As occupational therapy is the ultimate measure to solving mental problems, we want to establish a working-cum residential community for the mentally ill where we would work & get paid to support ourselves. The society could be founded with Bengali traditional ambience, catering to the utilities of the outside world as also serving as an international tourist spot with Indian amenities. If multinationals / investors contribute to our idea, not only, not only the percentage of the formidable money yielded may be shared amongst the investors, us, & TURNING POINT, but we also that we would find shelter in this world. Fears about our financial future would also find solution, providing us occupation through this innovative business-like outlook toward rehabilitation of the mentally ill.  

We want to establish international network for mutual assistance & development of rehabilitation. We also aspire to publish our challenging experiences in all languages as a contribution to the world of mental health. One book is already compiled & anyone interested may contact. 

We intend scope for building international educational institutions for mentally challenged children who have discontinued school due to learning disabilities, slow-learning, dyslexia, hyperactivity, conduct disorder, regression, etc.
