Psychosocial Rehabilitation

About Psychosocial Rehabilitation

Psychosocial rehabilitation services use a comprehensive approach (mind, body, and spirit) to work with the whole person for the purposes of improving an individual’s functioning, promoting management of illness(s), and facilitating recovery. The goal of psychosocial rehabilitation is to support individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses as active and productive members of their communities with the ability to manage their illness and their lives with as little professional intervention as possible. Individuals, in partnership with staff, form goals for skills development in the areas of vocational, educational, and interpersonal growth (e.g. household management, development of social support networks) that serve to maximize opportunities for successful community integration. Individuals proceed toward goal attainment at their own pace and may continue in the program at varying levels intensity for an indefinite period of time
