Community Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS)

Community-Based Rehabilitation is a program in which participants learn specific skills that foster rehabilitation and recovery from an assigned community-based rehabilitation specialist (formerly PSR).

What is Community Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS)?

CBRS offers a wide range of skill-building services to adults recovering from a severe and persistent mental illness. Participants work one-on-one with a CBRS worker both in their homes and in the community to enhance skills needed to reduce the impact their mental illness has on their life. Our treatment plans are guided by the participant’s goals. Not only does everyone have the right to lead a successful, fulfilling life, everyone has the right to self-determination and to choose what outcomes they want from services. A CBRS worker may work with a participant in areas including symptom management, communication and social skills, problem solving, budgeting, staying healthy, maintaining supportive relationships, and many other skills that can help participants lead a rewarding life.

The Role Of CBRS

The inclusion and participation of people with mental health problems in all aspects of community life is supported.

CBR programmes are designed to protect and promote the rights of individuals with mental health problems, to support their recovery, and to facilitate their participation and inclusion in their families and communities. CBR also contributes to the prevention of mental health problems and promotes mental health for all community members.
