Initiative details

For the past 20 years, Rescho, Inc. has been developing and providing optimized systems for psychiatric hospitals and other psychiatric and welfare organizations.
One social problem in recent years is that social withdrawal is affecting not only young people but also the middle-aged and elderly. There are three Withdrawal Counseling and Support Centers in Hiroshima Prefecture, as well as several other private and NPO organizations that provide support.
One of these organizations is FOOT&WORK, a non-profit organization that operates welfare service offices that provide self-reliance training for people with disabilities. In the course of its activities to date, it has received many comments from people who said, “I don’t know where to go for advice.” In response, we launched a project to create a portal site where people can find a place to seek advice when they want to. Drawing on Rescho’s expertise in the development of electronic medical records for psychiatry and interviews with psychiatric care providers, we jointly built and released Harmoni@Home in March 2021.

Harmoni@Home is here to help people in social withdrawal who need someone to listen to them or don’t know where to go for help.

This site lists a variety of sources of support and allows people and their families to connect directly with support groups via email or telephone. In addition, if supporters are able to establish support networks through the site, they will be able to provide more comprehensive support, such as joining together to provide the services they specialize in.
Furthermore, in April 2021, we went beyond the boundaries of medical care and released Waroku Public Health, a cloud-based consultation support system for consultation support organizations. This system is designed to resolve issues facing both the people who are in need and the people providing support.
We are currently examining the possibility of linking Waroku Public Health with Harmoni@Home. This will enable support from specialist organizations to be provided on an all-in-one basis and is anticipated to improve the quality of support.
We believe that by taking SDG 3 “Health and Well-being for All” as our main priority and developing infrastructure to provide individually optimized support and psychiatric care to local residents, we can contribute to the creation of a society full of well-being, where no one is left behind and everyone can live a fulfilling life.


In addition to providing consultation services, we are hoping to use the portal site to build a support network for social withdrawal.

Key Points

After releasing Harmoni@Home, we will further develop a system to energize Harmoni@Home and provide appropriate support to those who need it, using interviews and video production to present support organizations in more detail.
In addition, no matter how much support information is available on the portal site, it is only useful if people know about it. Accordingly, we are also putting a lot of effort into publicity activities, such as advertising the project on the radio, where a Rescho representative appears once a month, and posting information on buses running in Hiroshima City. A press release was issued when the site was launched, and it was covered and broadcast on TV news.


In order to let Hiroshima residents know about the portal site, a bus advertising Harmoni ran in the city for one year. (*We will switch to advertising on the Hiroshima Electric Railway in January of next year.)
