Rehabilitation in psychiatry is a therapeutic approach that helps individuals with mental illness to see beyond mere symptom recovery. It helps the person to develop and utilize their full potential through a process of learning and support from the environment. Rehabilitation complements psychiatric treatment through a holistic approach by guiding persons with mental illness from symptom reduction/ recovery to the most important aspect for any treatment- reintegration of the individual back into their own community. Psychiatric rehabilitation focuses on enhancing one’s role functioning to an optimum extent. Rehabilitation process can vary according to the setting- it can be institution based or community based. MSCTRF has ventured its platform for psychiatric rehabilitation both on Institution basis as well as Community through its varied projects spread across rural and urban areas in and around Madurai city, Tamil Nadu.
