  About Us

St. Joseph’s Mental Health Care Home is an institution to rehabilitate the mentally ill persons. This is the pioneer of this sort in Kerala. It is Instituted in 16th August, 1993 by Mar Joseph Kundukulam the former Archbishop who is generally known as the “Father of the poor”. The Co Founder of this institution is Msgr. Joseph Vilangadan a pioneer in social work and charity based activities in Kerala. The fast growth of the nuclear family system, the openness to the global system of the life, the approach to the new way of life i.e., the pragmatism and utilitarianism, the change in the morality and other values of life, etc… made more people to face the mentally illness. The world Health Organization had announced that approximately the two fifth of the Total population are facing this illness. So there are persons who live in the houses, alienated, separated, unwanted and without any support. There are a many people who have no abode and caretaker. The social stigma prevailing among the so-called literate and well educated Keralites does not allow the people to make marriage relations and any other sort. Not only the ill persons but the whole family itself has to face these situations very cruelly. It is due to this identification, the founders erected this institution on the ground that the ill persons were burden to the family. So the founding of this institution is important for “a decent living” of the mentally ill persons.
