Defining Psychiatric Rehabilitation:
Psychiatric rehabilitation promotes recovery, full community integration and improved
quality of life for persons who have been diagnosed with any mental health condition
that seriously impairs functioning. Psychiatric rehabilitation services are collaborative;
person directed, individualized, an essential element of the human services spectrum,
and should be evidence-based. They focus on helping individuals develop skills and
access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful and satisfied
in the living, working, learning and social environments of their choice.
