In recent years there has been significant growth in academic programs that prepare students to become psychiatric rehabilitation practitioners. Educators from a number of these programs have come together to form a consortium. This group has the potential to enhance psychiatric rehabilitation education by developing curricula and fieldwork standards, sharing educational resources, providing professional development opportunities for faculty in a newly emerging academic field, and promoting increased dissemination of psychiatric rehabilitation education at both the undergraduate and graduate level. These activities can positively impact mental health systems by providing the recipients of psychiatric rehabilitation services increased access to well-trained professionals who have internalized recovery-oriented principles and values.
