Occupational Therapists (OTs) support people to develop strategies needed to participate in the things you need and want to do, that may be being impacted by mental health challenges. Occupational Therapists specialise in working with people to develop strategies to self-regulate emotions and distress and also in performing day to day activities.
How can OT support me?
OTs focus on enabling people to identify their strengths to change aspects of themselves, occupations they participate in or their environment, to build and maintain a satisfying and meaningful life.
OTs offer assessment, support and skill development in the areas of:
- Health and wellbeing
- Daily living skills
- Preparing for work, study or volunteering
- Practical management of distress and learning self-regulation skills
- Developing productive routines and time management
OTs work in partnership with NEBMHS clinicians to assist you with the process of getting back on track to living a self-determined, satisfying and meaningful life.
Referral to an OT while you are receiving services from NEBMHS, is through your treating psychiatrist or clinician.
