Rehabilitation refers to activities which focus on discovering and developing a person’s strengths. Rehabilitation assists persons to improve functioning to gain desired roles in their community. Psychiatric Rehabilitation believes that people with mental illness can recover. They have personal strengths and the ability to make choices in their lives, achieve self-reliance and community integration, and develop skills and have access to appropriate resources.
The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program is grounded in the Principles of Boston University Approach to Psychiatric Rehabilitation, The Community Support Program, and Recovery Oriented Behavioral Health Services. The Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program is designed to assist individuals with mental illness to choose, get, keep personal goals in a living, learning, working and/or social environment of their choice.
If you are not satisfied or are not having success with your current living situation, job, social life, wellness, or maybe you are thinking of going to school, Psychiatric Rehabilitation might be for you.
