Mental Health and Lifestyle Redesign
Occupational therapy focuses on purposeful activities to help people regain performance skills and increase independence lost through an illness or injury. Occupational Therapists will create Individualized or group programs designed to improve or enable participation in roles, habits, and routines in home, school, workplace, community, and other settings.
In the mental health setting, Occupational Therapists help individuals with various mental health illnesses set and attain goals. We will meet with each individual to create an individualized treatment plan that involved planning and working toward specific goals, which vary based on the needs of the individual. Some goals may be improving or developing skills such as:
- Problem solving
- Emotional regulation
- Coping mechanisms
- Social participation
- Sleep cycle
- Increase assertiveness
- Sequence and organization

The Framework describes the central concepts that ground occupational therapy practice and builds a common understanding of the basic tenets and distinct contribution of the profession. The occupational therapy domain and process are linked inextricably in a transactional relationship, as illustrated in Figure 3. An understanding of this relationship supports and guides the complex decision making required in the daily practice of occupational therapy and enhances practitioners’ ability to define the reasons for and direct interventions to clients (persons, groups, and populations), family members, team members, payers, and policymakers. The Framework highlights the distinct value of occupation and occupational therapy in contributing to client health, well-being, and participation in life.
