In the Khabarovsk Territory, they want to change the concept of providing assistance to neuropsychiatric patients. Instead of a closed boarding school in the region, they will build a house for social support of disabled people with a modern and humane approach to patient care. The local project will become part of the all-Russian project, which oversees the ONF.

“We refused to build a neuropsychiatric boarding school. We will build a house of social support of a completely different type, so that there are open rooms, so that there are two, three, somewhere, one person each. That there was a five-day and full-time escort, round-the-clock escort, depending on the needs, ”said Governor Sergei Furgal.

The region will be one of the pilot regions of the All-Russian project for the development of palliative care “Region of care”, which oversees the ONF. The main task is to change the approach to providing assistance, which, according to experts, in many institutions is still based on the principles of "Soviet punitive psychiatry."

“Children are getting older, parents understand that they can’t cope at some stage, and it would be better to transfer the child to social services. They do not want to send children to those boarding schools that work according to the Soviet type. These are closed institutions, built on non-humane principles, ”said Anna Federmesser, member of the ONF central headquarters and founder of the charity foundation, who on the eve got acquainted with the work of existing boarding schools in the Khabarovsk Territory.

The decision to build a neuropsychiatric boarding school at 400 places was announced in the region late last year. Then, both the residents of the village of Nekrasovka of the Khabarovsk region, in the vicinity of whom the boarding school was going to erect, and the relatives of the disabled opposed this idea. Now the authorities have changed the concept of the future institution. It will be calculated maximum on 200 places.
