Psychosocial Recovery Coach

We empower individuals to take an active role in their recovery.

What is a Psychosocial Recovery Coach?

A Psychosocial Recovery Coach (PRC) serves as a crucial ally in the journey of individuals facing mental health challenges that extend beyond symptom management. By collaboratively setting personalised goals and focusing on empowerment, the coach helps individuals build practical life skills, resilience, and coping mechanisms. 

Through advocacy and resource connections, our Recovery Coaches facilitate access to necessary services and community resources. Working closely with the individual's treatment team, our Recovery Coaches ensures a cohesive and person-centred approach. The role of a Psychosocial Recovery Coach is to empower individuals to take an active role in their recovery, fostering holistic well-being, and guiding them towards a path of self-determined and fulfilling life.

How can they help?

  • Holistic Support:

A Psychosocial Recovery Coach addresses various aspects of an individual's life, considering not only the mental health symptoms but also the social, emotional, and environmental factors that contribute to their well-being.

  • Goal-Oriented Approach:

The coach collaborates with the individual to identify personal goals related to their recovery journey. These goals may include building coping skills, improving relationships, enhancing daily functioning, or pursuing meaningful activities.

  • Empowerment and Self-Determination:

The focus is on empowering individuals to take an active role in their recovery. A Recovery Coach encourages self-determination, helping individuals identify their strengths, values, and preferences to make informed choices about their path to recovery.

  • Skill Building:

Psychosocial Recovery Coaches assist individuals in developing and enhancing practical life skills, coping mechanisms, and resilience. These skills are crucial for navigating challenges, managing stress, and maintaining overall mental health.

  • Advocacy and Resource Connection:

Advocacy is a significant aspect of the role, as Recovery Coaches may help individuals access appropriate services, connect with community resources, and navigate the mental health system. This ensures a comprehensive approach to recovery.

  • Collaboration with the Treatment Team:

A Psychosocial Recovery Coach often works collaboratively with mental health professionals, therapists, and other members of the treatment team. This coordination ensures that the individual receives integrated and cohesive support.

  • Flexible and Person-Centered Approach:

Recognizing that recovery is a highly individualized process, Psychosocial Recovery Coaches tailor their approach to the unique needs, preferences, and pace of each person they work with.

Psychosocial Recovery Coaches play a pivotal role in supporting individuals with mental health challenges by fostering holistic well-being, empowering self-directed recovery, and assisting in the development of skills and resources necessary for a fulfilling life.
