Our activity was aimed at rehabilitating abused women who were housed at a shelter care and focused on counselling and support for these women who have undergone various forms of violence ,anti-suicide counselling and health awareness and check up for them as they ignore their health due to history of violence and a poor mental health. The overgrowing health issues , exponential rise of mental health issues and suicide rates in these women compelled us to take up this project.
