What is PSR?

Psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) promotes resilience, personal recovery, full community integration, and a sense of purpose and meaning for those who have been diagnosed with any mental health condition and/or addiction issue.

PSR is for practitioners. 


Judi Chamberlin (1944-2010) was a leader in the Consumer/Survivor Movement. She said this about recovery: "'s very important to recognize that recovery is not something that happens to a few exceptional, privileged or lucky people....recovery is possible for everyone who's been diagnosed with a major mental illness." 






PSR/RPS Canada is a registered charity. We appreciate all donations. To donate, contact us. 

PSR provides tools to support the journey, Recovery is the personal journey.


Recovery is...

a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills and/or roles. It is a way of living a satisfying, hopeful, and contributing life even with limitations caused by the illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning and purpose in one’s life as one grows beyond the catastrophic effects of mental illness.”
— William Anthony

Self-Nourishment Challenge–For Practitioners

We want to support you in your personal journey of self-care. 

Providing high quality service to others, starts right within each of us.
When we work on our own wellness, we are in a better position to provide support to others.  

We at PSR Canada are committed to supporting high quality care in every capacity.
That desire led us to create this Self-Nourishment Challenge. 


In the Competencies of Practice for Recovery-Oriented Practitioners, competencies B.3 & B.4 say:

  • B.3 Maintains personal wellness to assure the effective provision of services to others
  • B.4 Assures competence through life-long learning and on-going professional development
