    Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP)

    ​In Maryland, a psychiatric rehabilitation program (PRP) is an accreditation-based licensed program that provides community-based comprehensive rehabilitation and recovery services and supports and promotes successful community integration and use of community resources.


    To facilitate the successful participation of persons with severe mental illness in the community.


    All PRP participants will receive high-quality, cost-effective and evidence-based services tailored to their individual needs. Consequently, PRP participants will live successfully in the community supported by outcomes-driven programming to address living, working, and social functioning. They will have health outcomes similar to or in excess of the surrounding community as a result of having increased access to health care services, and they will have reduced use of more intensive interventions.


    ❖Keeping participant at the center of the discussion, including Culturally Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS)


    ❖Improved quality of life, outcomes, and recovery for PRP participants
    ❖Reduced hospital admission through community integration for participants
    ❖Increased accessibility of person-centered PRP services across the state
