The Sheltered Housing initiative aims:
• To defend the individual and social rights of the tenants as well as their privacy.
• To promote personal development and socialization.
• To improve social skills through daily contact with the community.
• To reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness.
• To respect the dignity and personality of each patient.
• To improve patients' self-awareness and perception of reality.
• To cultivate team spirit.
• To encourage and support the patients' social involvement and participation in leisure activities.
• To encourage the guests' reconnection with their relatives.
• To provide assistance for the family environment and to prepare it to host the patients after their psychosocial rehabilitation has been completed.
To achieve the goals of the Protected Housing programme would mean to contribute to reducing the economic and social cost of mental illness.
