Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (PRS) are designed to prepare individuals to function as actively, adaptively, and independently in their communities as possible. The service assists clients to strengthen, restore and/or develop the necessary individual skills, abilities, and environmental supports to improve their personal, social, family, occupational/educational lives, and overcome the isolation and withdrawal experienced by those individuals with a serious mental illness. This service will help the individuals assume responsibility over their lives and behaviors and improve their general well-being.
PRS promotes recovery, full community integration, and improved quality of life for persons who have been diagnosed with any mental health condition that seriously impairs their ability to lead meaningful lives. Services are collaborative, person-directed, and individualized. PRS is an essential element of the health care and human services spectrum, and should be evidence-based. Services focus on helping individuals develop skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful and satisfied in the living, working, learning, and social environments of their choice.
