Various programs for social rehabilitation and support for life

We have following support programs depending on circumstances, worries, and condition of patients.

  • Returning to work support program: A program applicable to people who are currently absent from work, or on sick leave. This is to aim for acquiring interpersonal relations through cognitive-behavioral therapy. We also have an approach to prevent a recurrence.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy for women: We have a program through which our patients will learn skills for behaviors and recognitions based upon cognitive-behavioral therapy, while taking up domestic concerns that female patients often have. The benefit is to enable for the patients to be released from sense of isolation, and become easy to find out clues of problem solving.

We, therefore, recommend electroconvulsive therapy in which providing electrical stimulation to the patients with depression who have concerns on medication treatments. Prior to the electroconvulsive therapy, we will provide sufficient explanation and will perform it based upon consent from the patients.
