PSR/RPS Canada provides resources, and education for supporting person-directed, recovery-oriented services across Canada. 

What is PSR?

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

PSR supports practitioners and organizations to provide recovery-oriented services.

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
