Laboratorios DAU is a social enterprise dedicated to packing and packaging services of products for third parties, employing people with serious mental disorders. The project was launched in 1992, at a time when those responsible recognize that "the therapies and rehabilitation offered to help these people did not give positive results."
The decision was made to combine psycho-social therapy with the company's own activity. The results were spectacular, thanks to the feeling of responsibility that was generated among these people. By being able to work, their autonomy increased a great deal, allowing them to feel better with themselves and helping them improve their social skills.
The DAU workers receive a variety of training, both individual and in groups.
