Despite of compelling statistics psychiatric rehabilitation remains an enigma to clinicians. The second edition of enabling recovery book and also the new NICE guidelines on rehabilitation for adults with complex psychosis and related severe mental health conditions which is expected to be published in August 2020 have made the principles and practices of rehabilitation psychiatry more clearer.

Deciding which service users are committed to change and then promoting willingness for those service users to engage in a change process is perhaps one of he most difficult tasks facing clinicians. Led by Dr Rebecca Lasseko, MBchB, MRCPsych, MSc, Psychiatry, Consultant Psychiatrists and Clinical Lead of Complex Rehabilitation Services for Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation trust, this talk is aimed at raising awareness of what psychiatric rehabilitation role is in the care of service users as result supporting clinicians to identify which service users will benefit with what more easily.
