In another case, 47-year-old Dasharath, a native of Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district, was reunited with his family after 12 years.
The Snehalaya members saw him roaming in the streets of Hampankatta on January 16, 2015. After psychiatric treatment at Yenepoya Hospital, he was rehabilitated at Snehalaya Psycho Social Rehabilitation Centre. With the support and care of Snehalaya team, he became a normal person and was later sent to Shraddha Rehabilitation Foundation for Reunion with his family recently.
