According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health Human Services, March 2012, up to half of all patients from psychiatric hospitals require readmission within 1 year of discharge.

Case management services

Medication education

Appointment coordination & support

Independent living skills

Development of effective coping skills

Person centered treatment planning

Peer support system

Community resource facilitation and entitlements

Rössler W. Psychiatric Rehabilitation today: an overview. World Psychiatry. (2006)

The World Psychiatric Association (WPA) highlighted that the aim of psychosocial rehabilitation is to support people with SMI in developing their cognitive, emotional and social skills, in order to live in the community with the slightest professional sustenance.

The premise of psychosocial rehabilitation is that, beyond clinical severity, each patient has strengths and resources on which rehabilitation could be addressed.
