  Peer Support Groups
 
In order to have regular interaction with our patients we have formed Peer Support Groups. Our experienced team of volunteers and doctors are conducting these groups. Monthly or bi-monthly meetings are conducted for patients where their problems are discussed and solutions found or suggested by doctors. There is also interaction between patients on their own experiences with the disease and how they have surmounted the ordeal. There is also playtime when the patients can play chess, carrom etc. We are getting very encouraging response to these group activities. These groups also encourage member patients to learn a craft with which they can manage their living, like soap making, artificial flower making, carry home bag making etc. PPCS also have an outlet for these products. This is part of the rehabilitation project of PPCS.
