According to the specialists from the department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation at NIMHANS, besides active treatment of the clients with mental illnesses, most often have rehabilitation needs to reintegrate back into the social mainstream. The focus on recovery oriented practices and services are as important if not more, for the clients with mental illnesses and their family members.
Over the years, emphasis in psychiatric rehabilitation has shifted from “just keeping patients occupied” to “recovery for community reintegration”. Hence, their services are called as “Recovery Oriented Services (ROSeS)”. The aim of the team is to provide services beyond recovery from symptoms of psychiatric disorder.
