International Association of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services

Welcome to IAPSRS…Your window to the world of psychiatric rehabilitation!


IAPSRS (the International Association of Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services) is the premier source for individuals around the world and those interested in international issues who practice and support psychiatric/psychosocial rehabilitation. 


We are strong advocates for a universal understanding and use of psychiatric rehabilitation principles to achieve recovery. Cultural diversity plays a significant role in an individual's recovery and life, and it is only through interaction with other cultures that we can begin to understand that role and to share successful recovery models throughout the world.  


IAPSRS currently represents individuals from Australia, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the United States. We offer the amazing opportunity for professionals around the globe to discuss psychiatric rehabilitation issues, and we hope to continue establishing contacts around the world to help IAPSRS share its knowledge and learn new ideas. 


Our goal is to make information about psychiatric rehabilitation accessible around the world through our website and communications.  Check out the following international resources for psychiatric rehabilitation!
