Cheery Friday

This project is designed specifically for the mentally disturbed who lack different types of social network in our modern society. In Xinglong Public Housing where Taipei Mental Rehabilitation Association’s Wenshan branch stations, members with mental disabilities are divided into different functional groups such cooking, planting and gardening, and sanitation. On the one hand, the mentally disturbed are expected to rebuild mutual-respect as well as self-respect through leading a routine life, where they manage to achieve self-sufficiency living. On the other hand, the introduced Sporty Friday is to break the fixed routine and to arouse vigor through a spirit of competition. While playing table tennis, basketball, badminton or play games on Switch, student volunteers from NCCU and members of the rehabilitation association get to know each other. Which answers the need for a response and a recovery plan that addresses social-network determinants of mental health.
