There are three components in psychiatric rehabilitation: medication, the rehabilitation relationship, and rehabilitation program efforts. This volume deals with all three, assessing their importance and explaining how they can be integrated in comprehensive psychiatric rehabilitation. The example used throughout is the program approach at Thresholds, a Chicago-based agency for psychiatric rehabilitation; all the contributors have held important staff roles at Thresholds. This volume contains the contributors' current thoughts on psychiatric rehabilitation, illustrated by the story of how and why Thresholds operates as it does and how it arrived where it is today. This is the 68th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Mental Health Services. For more information on the series, please see the Journals and Periodicals page.
