Psychiatric rehabilitation assessment is the first phase of the psychiatric rehabilitation process. The psychiatric rehabilitation process itself varies greatly in terms of its formality, specificity, and documentation. At its most generic level, the practice of psychiatric rehabilitation involves consumers figuring out the residential, vocational, educational, and/or social goals they want to achieve and developing the skills and supports they need to reach their goals. In some psychiatric rehabilitation programs, this process is helped to unfold in an indirect, less formal, and less documented manner (for example, clubhouses). In other psychiatric rehabilitation programs, this process is directly facilitated and documented by a practitioner (for example, programs using the psychiatric rehabilitation approach developed at Boston University). Even with differences in how the entire psychiatric rehabilitation process is structured in various rehabilitation settings, the psychiatric rehabilitation assessment process at a minimum should include information on consumers' goals and the skills and supports needed to reach those goals.
