Two months after the Dec. 17 deadly arson incident at a mental health clinic in Osaka, a local company supporting people with disabilities is preparing to launch an online platform on March 1 to provide former clinic patients and survivors with a safe space to share their experiences.

With it’s office located only a few-minutes walk away from the arson site in the city’s Kita Ward, Shogaisha.com offers job consultation and other services to people with mild developmental disabilities. Although survivors and former patients of the attacked clinic are not necessarily disabled, some of them have been receiving support from the company.
