Bodhi Peet is a voluntary, non-Governmental, residential social-welfare organization exclusively meant for the training, welfare and rehabilitation of the orphan mentally retarded persons irrespective of age, genders, religion, caste or creed. Perhaps it is the first institution of this kind in the eastern India which has been established under the auspices of the Calcutta Association for Mental Health and now registered under the societies Registration Act XXVI of 1961.

A group of eminent psychologists and Psychiatrists of Calcutta of that time noticed that a prominent segment of our society has been over looked in every sphere of human existence since ages. The segment is called “Persons with Mental Retardation” who are not that much capable of doing the usual day-to-day activities properly for themselves. Therefore, their mission was to challenge the discriminations and exclusion by proving opportunities for the persons with low levels of mental faculties to live work and learn independently..
