Zorggroep Sint-Kamillus is a facility for mental health care within the Brothers of Charity with 3 campuses: campus Krijkelberg in Bierbeek, campus PVT Salvenbos in Heverlee and campus Oudebaan in Leuven.
PVT Salvenbos is a form of housing for residents with a long-term stabilized psychiatric disorder and offers continuous guidance that should allow residents to regain their autonomy and, if possible, even return to normal social life. A PVT is a link in the care process of a resident.
The resident and his individual growth opportunities are always central. People in the PVT also have wishes and desires that they still want to fulfill. The PVT is not a final stage, but a period in a life. Some people still want to return to society. They want to live in a sheltered form of living. They only want to live with the guidance of mobile teams, for example. They opt for a longer stay in a PVT environment. Others prefer to go to a residential care center when they get older and still others, with psychiatric difficulties who already live outside, sometimes want to find temporary peace in a PVT environment. That is why we give a number of the 60 people who live in the PVT Salvenbos the opportunity to work towards their goal in smaller living groups.
