Promoting wellness and recovery through research, education, and training is at the heart of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Foundation (PRF). PRF works tirelessly to ensure that psychiatric rehabilitation professionals are at the forefront with innovative solutions to manage the challenges and opportunities of the future, extending the impact of their work.
