It is grounded in the notion of recovery and self-determination (empowerment) for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness.
This course explores the ways and means of how psychosocial/psychiatric rehabilitation can assist the individual and the mental health system in achieving recovery. This course focuses on core concepts of psychiatric rehabilitation, psychiatric rehabilitation models and methods, and some of the key competencies for working in a psychiatric rehabilitation environment.
