This unit is designed to introduce students to psychiatric rehabilitation, an effective approach for working with people who experience psychiatric disability. Students will be introduced to the concept of recovery for people diagnosed with mental illness and to the goals, values and guiding principles of psychiatric rehabilitation. Rehabilitation interventions that have demonstrated efficacy in promoting recovery by reducing barriers to participation will be presented. Practices that aim to address the culture of stigma and low expectations by society of people with mental ill health will be examined. Local and international research underpinning best practice in rehabilitation management and service delivery will be reviewed and consumer perspectives and experiences explored.
