The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation
The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, located in Boston, Massachusetts, is affiliated with Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Boston University. The Center is a research, training, and service organization dedicated to improving the lives of persons who have psychiatric disabilities by improving the effectiveness of people, programs, and service systems.
Our work is guided by the most basic of rehabilitation values that first and foremost, persons with psychiatric disabilities have the same goals and dreams as any other person. They want a decent place to live, suitable work, social activities, and friends to whom to they can turn in times of crisis. The mission of the Center is to increase knowledge in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation and to apply this body of knowledge to train treatment personnel, to develop effective rehabilitation programs, and to assist in organizing both personnel and programs into efficient and coordinated service delivery systems.
