Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) Q&A

What is a psychiatric rehabilitation program (PRP)?

A PRP is a structured treatment program that helps people with mental health conditions improve their daily functioning. These programs focus on helping individuals develop skills, strategies, and support systems to manage their mental health and lead fulfilling lives. 

PRPs typically involve a combination of therapeutic interventions, job training, social skills development, medication management, and community integration support. A PRP empowers individuals struggling with mental health to regain and maintain independence, enhance their quality of life, and successfully integrate into their communities.

  • Community services (food, clothing, hygiene, etc.)
  • Daily living, vocational, and social skills
