Southeastern Behavioral Healthcare Services Psychosocial Rehabilitation Program (PSR) is designed to help adults with psychiatric disabilities increase their functioning so that they can be successful and satisfied in the environments of their choice with the least amount of ongoing professional intervention.
PSR focuses on skill and resource development related to life in the community and to increasing the participant’s ability to live as independently as possible, to manage their illness and their lives with as little professional intervention as possible, and to participate in community opportunities related to functional, social, educational and vocational goals.
PSR helps an Individual to make changes in their values, goals, knowledge, skills, life roles, and self image. Due to those changes, an individual may no longer see themselves as the diagnosis they were given, but as the person they are and can live rich and rewarding lives.
The PSR program is individual-based and follows the basic concepts of recovery and empowerment with an emphasis on self-help. The overall goal of PSR is to help the individual develop social competency and personal independence. It also helps individuals to gain confidence, self-respect and a positive purpose so that they can lead rewarding lives despite their condition.
