Psychiatric Rehabilitation

Psychiatric rehabilitation, also referred to as psych social rehabilitation and commonly known as psych rehab, is the process of restoring community functioning and well-being for individuals diagnosed with mental health or emotional disorders, who may also have a psychiatric disability. It is crucial to rehabilitate patients with severe and persistent mental illnesses. The primary goal of psychiatric rehabilitation is to support individuals with impairments in developing the emotional, social, and cognitive skills necessary to live, learn, and work in the community with minimal professional assistance. The general philosophy of psychiatric rehabilitation encompasses two therapeutic strategies. The first strategy focuses on the patient, aiming to enhance their ability to cope with stressful situations. The second strategy, known as the ecological approach, aims to improve environmental resources to reduce stressors. In most cases, a combination of both treatments is necessary for individuals with disabilities. Psychiatric rehabilitation has advanced to a stage where it should be readily available to all individuals with impairments.
