Continuing Theraphy Center
After being receiving treatment, patients with mental disorders are sent home to complete their second half of the treatment. The second half of the treatment includes going back to their daily routine and to adapt other people. However, %72 of the time, for people who live alone, the second half of the treatment is unsuccessful. For people who are not living alone, this percentage drops (WHO-MSD-MER-2017.2). Our aim is to create a facility for patients to complete their second half of the treatment. This facility will include activities that are advised by WHO for people with mental illnesses. An accommodation part for this facility exists, also it is possible to attend the activities from the outside. Since people are treated by nature, besides the plan has an organic shape intertwined with nature, design of the architectural elements like columns were inspired from nature.
