Healthy Mind Maryland offers psychiatric day programs for adults living with serious mental illness. Our programs deliver individualized services and resources to promote recovery and help clients become more independent.

What Is Psychiatric Rehabilitation?

Psychiatric rehabilitation encompasses a range of programs. They share the goal of helping people with serious mental illness successfully manage the symptoms of their illness and develop independent living skills.

Our psychiatric rehabilitation day programs promote independent living skills through intensive daily support. Programs are conveniently located in counties throughout the state of Maryland.

In the evenings, clients return home. At home, they get hands-on practice using the skills they learn during the day.
