Psychiatric Rehabilitation promotes recovery–full community integration and improved qualityof life for persons who have been diagnosed with any mental health condition that seriously impairs functioning. Psychiatric rehabilitation services are collaborative, person-directed, and individualized, an essential element of the human services spectrum, and should be evidence-based. They 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.

Recovery is real, and it’s one of our top priorities. Every day, we are promoting a world in which individuals with mental illness can recover to achieve successful and satisfying lives in the working, learning and social environments of their choice. We believe that the principles and practices of psychiatric rehabilitation lead to recovery, and we are dedicated to supporting and strengthening the quality of community-oriented rehabilitation services and resources for persons with psychiatric disabilities. USPRA is committed to providing access, advocacy and strategies to implement state-of-the-art psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery-oriented practices through education and professional credentials, research, service outcomes, and networking.
