The Society for the Severely Mentally Handicapped (SSMH), is a voluntary welfare organisation which offers rehabilitation facilities to children and youths with severe multiple mental and physical disabilities.It also endeavours to give thechildren a place to belong and an opportunity to be independent through targeted therapy and education.
Established in June 1985, the primary objective of SSMH was to cater to the needs ofseverely mentally disabled children who could not be placed in training centres for the disabled that existed then. The operations started with four members of staff. Over the years, the centre has continued to expand its facilities and programs to meet the same objective. It now has grown to include more staff members, which include teachers, a housekeeper, physiotherapists, a speech therapist, an occupational therapist and some volunteers all playing their respective roles for the severely disabled.
SSMH is committed to running programs that are nurturing and supportive, and aims to continually affect remedial measures to meet the children's basic needs in order for them to move forward in their journey from welfare to self-reliance.
The Society for the Severely Mentally Handicapped, Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan (SSMH) is a voluntary welfare organization established in 1984 and registered with the Registrar of Societies with the objective of providing rehabilitation facilities to children and youths with severe mental and physical (multiple) disabilities. Following this objective, a Day Care and Training Centre was set up in June 1985.
