Here At GRBHS we believe that people CAN recover from the most serious and persistent types of mental illnesses. Our goal is to provide consumers in our/surrounding communities a state-of-the-arts psyhcosocial rehabilitation services intervention, and or support.


Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services are designed to prepare clients to function as actively, adaptively, and independently in society as possible and appropriate. The service assists clients strengthen, restore and/or develop the necessary individual skills, abilities and environmental supports to improve their personal, social, family, occupational/educational lives, and overcome the isolation and withdrawal experienced by the seriously mentally ill adult clients and emotionally disturbed children and adolescents. This service will help the clients assume responsibility over their lives and behaviors, and improve their general well being.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services are individualized and directly related to the client’s strengths, needs, level of functioning, and preferences. These services help the clients identify, cope with, or eliminate functional deficits and interpersonal barriers created by their disabilities, and address their short and long-term goals. Services can be provided on a short or long-term basis. When services are provided three (3) or more days per week, a calendar outlining scheduled activities and hours shall be posted and available to the clients.

The following planned and structured activities are directed to promote recovery, restore skills, and develop adaptive behaviors:

• Rehabilitative Interventions: include enabling clients to verbalize thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a supportive environment; helping the client reduce disorientation, distraction, preoccupation with disturbing thoughts and rituals, withdrawal, level of anxiety, hospitality and/or depression; promoting the client’s development of feelings of self-esteem, self-worth, social adaptation, and hope.

• Interpersonal Skills:
deal primarily with communication skills, problem solving, assertiveness training, and goal setting.

• Daily Living Skills:
include activities leading to the enhancement of self care and personal hygiene; selection of food and appropriate eating skills and habits; management of living space and upkeep of personal belongings or property; health and safety; rational problem solving and decision making; retail purchasing, budgeting, and economic issues; medication use and management of symptoms.

• Restorative Independent Living Skills:
include interventions focusing on the development, enhancement, and support of the skills necessary to develop successful roles in the community (i.e., ethics development, time management, self-concept, stress reduction, coping skills, and work readiness skills).
