Psychosocial Rehabilitation

What is Psychosocial Rehabilitation?

Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) helps educate and coach participants in a variety of life skills to help them live more independently in their community. The focus is on skill building to address and adapt to the impacts of mental health and substance use issues in the person’s life. PSR class topics are chosen based on the needs of the participants and will vary from site to site.

Topics can include:

  • Stress Management: Teaches techniques for managing the stresses and complexities of life.
  • Communication Skills: Assists participants in effectively expressing their ideas, wants, concerns, and emotions to others, and appropriately responding to other people.
  • Anger Management: Educates participants about feelings, techniques, and different processes to manage strong feelings of displeasure.
  • Self-Care Coping Skills: Explores with participants ways to care for themselves on a regular basis.
  • Money Management: Provides education for participants in developing budgets, managing finances, and improving their ability to become financially stable.
