Welcome To Queen of Peace Rehabilitation and crisis centre
Queen of Peace Rehabilitation and Crisis Centre is a strategic organization that rehabilitates patients with mental health challenges. It provides them with rehabilitation, reintegration facilities and basic life skills education. The institution has boarding facilities at the center which enables the rehabilitate children and a few adults due to limited facilities which gives us maximum time to monitor their progress and behavior. Patients are received from all over through referrals and also round up programs that we conduct periodically
The organisation is currently operating on a small scale capacity due to limited finances and facilities. With the right funding, there are huge opportunities for the organization to expand and make a lasting impact. The Centre survives on donations which are rare to come by in these inflationary and tough economic days.
Queen of Peace Rehabilitation and crisis Centre is a registered private voluntary organization (PVO 28/13) whose mandate is to provide structural residential rehabilitation programs and reintegrate back into society people with mental health challenges thus enabling them to be self-reliant. The centre was founded in 2006 as a half way home for children and adults with mental challenges. At its foundation, Queen of Peace Rehabilitation and Crisis centre provided temporal shelter for patients with mental challenges while providing them with rehabilitation. Such patients included adults and streets wonderers, people with drug problems and homeless people around the city of Gweru.
The Organization opened its doors to the public in 2009 upon realizing that there was a gap in the availability and provision of mental health services in the Province. It envisions a society where mental wellness and psychological wellbeing is the foundation of a healthy community and provides effective and innovative mental health care.
Accordingly, the organization’s core activities include:
- promotion of Mental health wellbeing
- mental health advocacy
- mental health education
- life skills training
- vocational skills training for self-sustenance
- reintegration into the community as productive members of the society
- Psychosocial support for vulnerable populations (Persons with psychosocial disabilities, women, orphans and other vulnerable children)
A society where mental wellness is the foundation of a healthy community.
At Queen of Peace we are dedicated to helping individuals lead mentally healthy lives. We believe that to achieve optimal health we must make a commitment to care for mind, body, and spirit. Often, we take care of our physical needs by eating well or exercising, and connect with a presence larger than ourselves to attend to our spirit’s needs. Yet, when it comes to taking care of our minds, we often dismiss the importance. When we ignore our mental health, we overlook the very part of us that helps us to know and achieve our best selves.
