Abstract: The Psychiatric Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit provides psychoeducational rehabilitation for people with severe psychiatric disorder. Initially clients are assessed on their psychiatric symptoms, coping skills, problems and quality of life. Clients then negotiate their goals, and undertake various combinations of six courses we offer. Each course provides information, support and skills in training to assist clients manage their illness, cope with problems, relate to others, and use their time in ways they find meaningful. Courses are supplemented by individual case management. Our goal is to empower clients to assert great control over their lives, and to reduce dependence upon health services.
