Welcome to the Center

The University of Chicago Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation is a training and research program dedicated to persons with severe mental illness and to the development and investigation of rehabilitation strategies that facilitate their treatment goals.

Towards this end, Center faculty and staff train clinical staff as well as clinical leaders to implement user-friendly and effective rehabilitation programs, provide ongoing consultation for maintenance of those programs, and investigate the efficacy of various rehabilitation and staff training programs. In addition, Center faculty are leading experts on the stigma of mental illness and effective programs for erasing it.
