What is rehabilitation?
An example of a rehabilitation program: COPSI (Community care for People with Schizophrenia in India) The COPSI project was a randomized controlled trial comparing the clinical and cost effectiveness of facility-based (usual) care and a collaborative community-based care intervention for people with schizophrenia in three sites in India. The community intervention was developed by a team comprising the treating psychiatrist, the intervention coordinator and lay community health workers (CHWs) and the majority of the service was delivered in home settings. A package of evidence based treatments was been selected for the community intervention that can be delivered by CHWs with adequate training and close supervision. See you tube

Individual placement and support
Many persons who suffered from psychosis find having a job most important in their life, sometimes more important than any therapy. It helps them to be part of community again. Being fired through psychosis, stigma and cognitive problems are obstacles. All kind of training has disappointing effects. What works is getting a job first and then working on the difficulties which are met. This approach is called individual placement and support.
