San Juan de Dios provides psychiatric care to patients who come from Cochabamba, Oruro and La Paz. The aim is to strengthen the mental health of the bolivian population.
The organization is doing this by providing therapeutic care and rehabilitation to patients with diseases such as alcoholism and drug addiction and offering help within a therapeutic community.
The help is provided to the patients by external monitoring or by offering a friendly and welcoming attention to hospitalized patients through comprehensive care.
Recently seven buildings have been built, 5 of which are designed to accommodate people with mental illness. Each community has a capacity for 32 hospitalized patients between men and women. One of the buildings is for the administrative area and another building for cooking and laundry.
We serve specialty psychiatric pathology primarily low income individulas at a departmental and national level.
