Occupational Therapy, Mental Health Housing, and Recovery
Presented by Sean Getty, MS, OTR/L
Course: #3784Level: Introductory1 Hour
The American Occupational Therapy Association continues to promote the role of occupational therapy in mental health settings, as this is a core component of the Centennial Vision (AOTA, 2006) and a focus of the Association’s position papers (AOTA, 2017). The profession has identified the role of occupational therapy in mental health recovery and includes residential settings as a treatment area (AOTA, 2016), however there continues to be a scarcity of therapists working in these settings and a lack of research to identify our role. This presentation will introduce participants to occupational therapy’s role in residential mental health treatment. Strategies that can be used to advocate to housing providers in forming relationships will be identified. Components of program design and interprofessional collaboration will also be identified. Case studies highlighting assessments relevant to this setting and individual and group approaches will be discussed.
