To initiate and strengthen interventions for persons with mental disorders and their families in the North Eastern states of India, in an attempt to achieve a life of better quality for them.
Anjana and Mukul Goswami, with like minded people, formed Ashadeep in 1996 to take care of people with mental disorders as the rehabilitation facilities were not available in Assam and the North East during that time. To avail these interventions people had to go to Kolkata or Bangalore, which was nor affordable for all.
Their traumatic but positive experiences of taking care of and rehabilitating his sister suffering from Schizophrenia led the founders, Mukul Chandra Goswami, a banker till 2001 and his wife Anjana, a Lecturer to form Ashadeep in 1996. According to Mukul Goswami, a common perception of health has been physical health only but Health means both Physical and Mental health.

 From street to family
The police informed Ashadeep of a woman breastfeeding puppies which became sensational news in the local TV channels of Assam. She had been roaming in the streets of Rowta (around 60 kms from Guwahati) for 8 years and had given birth to two children during that period. The first was a boy child and the second a girl child, both conceived as result of sexual abuse suffered by her in the streets. The children were taken away by the nearby people as they noticed that she was unable to take care of them. The Rowta Police handed her to Ashadeep Navachetana Transit Care identifying the symptoms of mental illness. On admission, she displayed symptoms like Self Muttering, Self Smiling, uncooperative, hallucinatory behavior etc. She was immediately given an anti-rabies injection (Rabipur). Then, she was intervened by a Gynaecologist as she was having post delivery related issues along with Psychiatric intervention. Later she was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Her Growth Chart score, Entry Point Score (EPS) was 1.04, which later developed to 4.6. After the improvement she was shifted to Navachetana Rehabilitation Home. The Mental Status Examination (MSE) revealed that general appearance, personal hygiene, maintaining eye to eye contact, rapport building, Sensorium, time, place, date were disoriented. Memory was inadequate, however social judgment was found satisfactory and was doing her work well. She was provided with the necessary anti-psychotic medicines immediately. With proper medication and care she started to recover slowly. Her home address was sought and attempts were made to trace it. On 20-05-2013, the first attempt was made to reintegrate her with her family. As per her statement the team went to nearby areas of Goreswar Railway Station but could not locate the home, hence took assistance of the Goreswar Police Station but no trace of her family was found. Hence she was been brought back to Rehabilitation Home again. The second attempt was made on 25-05-2013. The team was successful in tracing the address and found her family. The family members were very happy to see her alive and welcomed her warmly and with their eyes filled with tears of gratitude thanked the team for their efforts. The entire village gathered to see her as everyone considered her to be dead. She is continuing with the medicines as prescribed from Ashadeep’s weekly OPD.
