Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services Definition

Purpose

Adults with serious and persistent mental illness who participate in Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency and recovery through gains in personal empowerment, hopefulness, and competency. 

Definition

Psychiatric or Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services provide skill building, peer support, and other supports and services to help adults with serious and persistent mental illness reduce symptoms, achieve optimal levels of community membership, increase satisfaction with their living environment, and restore and/or enhance their personal, social, and vocational capabilities. 

Assertive Community Outreach services use a multi-disciplinary team approach to provide a full array of acute, active, and ongoing community-based psychiatric treatment, outreach, rehabilitation, and support services to adults with serious and persistent mental illness.
