What are Psychosocial Rehabilitative Services?
Psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) is the process of restoration of community functioning and well-being of an individual who has a psychiatric disability. The goal of PSR is to help individuals with persistent and serious mental health issues to develop the emotional, social and intellectual skills needed to live, learn, and work in the community with the least amount of professional support. PSR helps individuals grow beyond the effects of mental health illness. It is a recovery process that helps improve one’s quality of life through focusing on the strengths and potential of the individual. The overall goal of PSR is to restore hope to people who have experienced major setbacks in their ability to function because of their mental illness.
