Karwan-e-Hayat provides treatment and care to more than 65,000 poor psychiatric patients annually. Karwan-e-Hayat provides consultation, hospitalization, medicines and meals free or at highly subsidized rates to charity patients. Since we believe in providing holistic psychiatric care to mentally ill patients, our treatment plan includes modern state of the art medication, quality psychiatric care and counselling and rehabilitation services. All these step-by-step phases help patients in receiving:

  • Quality medication to control the symptoms of circumstantial influences or chemical imbalances in the brain
  • Therapy and counselling to ease the mentally ill patients’ violent behavior and in many cases, suicidal tendencies
  • Rehabilitation to achieve functionality
