María Josefa Recio and María Angustias Giménez, together with eight other sisters, represent the feminine face of Hospitality: women who are committed, as a result of their faith, to the merciful liberation of other women. Together with Benedict Menni, they formed the founding group that dedicated their lives to providing an answer for a profoundly neglected sector of society: the mentally ill.
The following are some of the guiding principles of our mission:
Our psychiatric and mental health care units provide comprehensive and specialist care both for people with mental health disorders and for their families, offering medical treatment, psychotherapy, psycho-social rehabilitation, and support for social integration.
We provide ongoing care through each of the phases of illness, from prevention, to serious crises, to chronicity. Our aim is to help people with mental health problems to resume their life projects with dignity and maintain an adequate quality of life.
To do so, we offer various options, such as short-, medium- or long-term hospitalisation, day-care, outpatient care, and home-based care, as well as intermediate day-care and residential options for people with long-term illnesses or who require a greater level of community support, and the promotion of integration into the workplace. Lastly, we have special mechanisms in place for treating certain pathologies, such as our Therapeutic Community for people with personality disorders.
