Adult Psychosocial Rehabilitative Services (PSR) consists of a network of services designed to support and restore community functioning and well-being of adults with a serious and persistent mental illness. The purpose of the program is to promote recovery, resiliency, and empowerment of the individual in his/her community. Program activities aim to improve reality orientation, social skills and adaptation, coping skills, effective management of time and resources, task completion, community and family integration, vocational and academic skills, and activities to incorporate the individual into independent community living; as well as to alleviate psychiatric decompensation, confusion, anxiety, disorientation, distraction, preoccupation, isolation, withdrawal and feelings of low self-worth. Programs generally operate 5 hours per day/5 days per week.
PSR services/programs must utilize systematic, curriculum based interventions for recovery skills development for participants. The curriculum based interventions must be evidence-based or recognized best practices in the field of mental health as recognized by SAMHSA.
Curriculum-based interventions must address the following outcomes for the individuals participating in PSR:
Increased knowledge about mental illnesses
Reduced distress from symptoms
Increased consistent use of medications
