Digvijay’s journey has been tough, battling schizophrenia from 2012-2013. Despite his struggles, he pushed himself to complete his post-secondary education, passing with a first-class grade of 63% while taking medication.
From 2013 to 2016, Digvijay struggled with his mental health. However, being transferred to the Schizophrenia Awareness Institute’s daycare didn’t make much difference. That is, until he discovered the Lighthouse.
At first, he was hesitant, unsure whether he would fit in. But as soon as he stepped foot in the Lighthouse, he felt welcomed with open arms. For the first time in a long time, he felt like he belonged somewhere. The staff at the Lighthouse treated him with kindness and respect, never making him feel uncomfortable or out of place.
There, he made several friends. The positive environment allowed him to open up and speak his mind. He began to think creatively and feel better in every way.
Even at home, his behavior had changed. He no longer got nervous or turned violent over small things. His dad noticed a positive change, and he seemed happier overall.
Lighthouse staff invited him to intern at the “Rainbow Day Care Center” once he finished the Lighthouse training. Rainbow Day Care Center is a recreational daycare for senior citizens. There, he was a model intern, completing every task with enthusiasm and care. He developed a love and affection for the elderlies here, rubbing their feet and holding their hands.
The positive development in Digvijay was clear for all to see. Digvijay’s story is one of hope and perseverance, a testament to the power of love and kindness in healing the soul.
