In an effort to improve the mental health of disaster survivors, the PULIH Foundation goes beyond providing clinical help for individuals. PULIH implements a broader, more holistic approach, called the Community Based Psychosocial Recovery (Pemulihan Psikososial Berbasis Komunitas). Within the context of repairing the damages due to traumatic incidents, PULIH aims to emphasize the dynamic relation between psychological/spiritual and social dimensions. This strong tie between these two factors plays a large role in the sufferings and psychological damage experienced by the individual victims.
Activities in the psychosocial recovery program implemented by PULIH are: organized and structured games for children, vocational training for women, support groups, religious practice activities, development of daily routine activities, psycho education, and support and technical assistance provision for the humanitarian workers who work with the survivors, among others
Psychosocial Recovery strives to direct the victim, as well as the broader society, back to the normal functions of everyday life.
