NWC was found in 2012. It provides community-based rehabilitation activities to people with mental disorders. More importantly, NWC helps the patients to earn the right to exist, to participate and to receive education so that they can be involved into the community life with equality and dignity.
The managerial way of NWC makes it possible to deliver rehabilitation service centered on people, to increase the patient’s confidence, to engage them into social activities, to realize their social values, to erase the fear and discrimination from the neighborhood through publicity and advocacy. Ours is different from the community-based rehabilitation in medical form. We do our best to help our member to regain their self-value, determination and confidence. We believe that the members should participate the internal jobs and activities willingly. We pay high attention to and respect the individual personality and potentiality
Currently, NWC is shifting its role from a rehabilitation organization to communities and families. NWC thinks it is important to prove the life quality for the people with mental illnesses, to strengthen their abilities to adapt to the society, to find access to social resources, to have normalized life space and at the same time open some opportunities to patients with capabilities to make contribution to the society and to help others
