Psychiatric rehabilitation is a combination of services incorporating social, educational, occupational, behavioral and cognitive supports to promote a personally-defined recovery and the highest level of independence. It is the principle behind numerous evidenced-based practices, such as club house rehabilitation services and supported employment services, and holds many values and practices in common with peer support. In the continuum of care, rehabilitation philosophy focuses on advocacy, meaning-making, and recovery.

Together We Are a Collaborative for Good
We are comprised of families, service providers, funders, trainers, educators, researchers, and people living with the aftermath of trauma and other types of extreme experiences that create emotional and cognitive distress. We invite you to join our cause.
Advancement of a Recovery Based Practice
People can recover from even the most serious and enduring emotional and cognitive challenges. Since the 1950s, Psychiatric Rehabilitation has advanced efforts to use effective and lower cost alternatives to long-term institutionalization. Psychiatric rehabilitation promotes a culture of personally-defined, meaningful recovery.
