4 years (2018-2021)
Milano, Omada community residential facility.
- Girls aged 12 and over with mental distress in need of community rehabilitation.
in 2020, the Covid-19 health emergency brought significant challenges to the Omada community, particularly with regard to its ability to ensure continuous rehabilitation projects. Nonetheless, the 12 girls accepted were each able to start on their own path: on the one hand, new daily habits were established to maintain a healthy personal and group balance; on the other hand, the entire community team helped them to develop awareness of the moment and to adopt new behaviors and attitudes to protect themselves and each other.
