Historical development

Moved by the problems faced by the people with mental and emotional problems, Fr. T. Stanislaus, a Catholic Priest, established PUNAR JEEVAN Counseling and Mental Health Service Center in the year 1992. It was registered under Indian Trust Act in the year 1992 with the number 84/92. It is a voluntary, non- profit making organization, which upholds the human and social values in its commitment to the poor and those who have psychological problems. Its services reach out the needy irrespective of caste, creed, race and religion.

From its inception, Punar Jeevan aimed at catering the needs of the people of the three southern most districts of Tamil Nadu; namely, Tuticorin, Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari. From 1992 to 2002, Punar Jeevan was functioning at Kanyakumari District. To reach out many more people more effectively, the administrative office and the centre were shifted to Thalapathi Samuthiram Keelur of Tirunelveli District in 2002. This place is strategically located to reach the people from the three districts.
