Psychiatric rehabilitation, also known as psych social rehabilitation and shortened to psych rehab by some providers, is the process of restoring community functioning and well-being to a person who has been diagnosed with a mental health or emotional disorder and may be considered to have a psychiatric disability. Patients with severe and persistent mental illnesses must be rehabilitated. The purpose of psychiatric rehabilitation is to assist impaired people in developing the emotional, social, and cognitive abilities they need to live, learn, and work in the community with the least amount of professional assistance possible. Two therapeutic strategies are included in the general philosophy of psychiatric rehabilitation. The first technique is patient-centred and focuses on improving the patient's ability to interact with a stressful situation. The second technique is ecological, and it aims to improve environmental resources in order to lessen stressors. The majority of disabled people require a combination of both treatments. Psychiatric rehabilitation has progressed to the point that it should be readily offered to all impaired people.
