Twenty- four sessions were planned (two sessions per week) for the intervention. An action plan was made according to which intervention program was supposed to proceed along with the medicines. The action plan was divided into two phases. The first phase was observation phase which include the observation of the initial condition prevailing among the patients in the ward while the second phase included the therapy session. For social awareness the group activity (group exercise, group singing&group activities like making cards, coloring & competitions) was organized. A group of 10 patients was formed and these patients were included in that group.
