Located in Kibbutz Harduf, in the lower Galillee, Hiram is a rehabilitative center for adult with mental health problems (ages 20-35). The 3-year program teaches the participants work skills and habits within an assisted living arrangement. The products they manufacture, i.e. ceramics, jewelry, paintings etc. are sold in the Hiram store and in a store located in Tivon. The comprehensive framework includes community life, work, treatment, psychiatric care and a variety of educational and art-based workshops.
