Occupational Center.

We provide people with mental illness with the necessary resources to promote their autonomy and achieve their inclusion.

Occupational activity is a beneficial therapy for the health of people with mental illness. They need to prepare for reintegration into the world of work but by acquiring the necessary resources.

Their job insertion brings the limelight back to their lives through the construction of the vital project itself as a recovery axis for their own health. Psychosocial and labour support programmes facilitate the acquisition of social roles that avoid potential difficulties in their social integration.

Pre-work project

Aware of the value of work as an engine towards their own personal fulfillment and social inclusion, we develop activities to enhance their capacities in a standardized environment and with the follow-up of the Occupational Therapist. Each activity will be:

Used in itself as a stimulus to cognitive development, an organizer of daily life and a vehicle for social relations.

It allows the economic autonomy necessary to play an active social role.

A day at the office

“Every night I do the cleaning activity of the office, that is, I clean the kitchen utensils that we use for dinner. For me this pre-work activity is very satisfying to me because it is as if it were a job.

They call it office because it is where are the fridges in which we store food, the oven where we are heated food, the dishwasher in which I have to put the trays that I clean, cutlery, glasses, etc.

I am very happy doing this activity because I feel useful and therefore it is as if I were a worker more. It has also helped me to meet rules, proposed objectives, organization and responsibility.

I like people to tell me when I’ve done the job right, because I find myself done.

Finally, I would like to tell you that I encourage you to carry out activities of this kind because you will be able to feel more useful and you will see that even if you have a disability we are also valued.”
