Together, We Learn Through Shared Skills And Experience

We know that every individual can recover from and grow beyond a mental health, substance use or trauma-based challenge with access to the skills and support they need to reach the goals personal to them. Psychiatric rehabilitation is a philosophy and a proven recovery process where people choose, get and keep a major role in the community that is personally meaningful to them.

The NY Psychiatric Rehabilitation Training Academy invites practitioners statewide to explore and incorporate this effective approach to rehabilitation services and evidence-based practices through our many online and in-person opportunities. This learning is applicable for both direct service staff and supervisors of PROS (Personalized Recovery Oriented Services), Adult BH HCBS (Home and Community Based Services) and CORE (Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment) Services.

Training Built for You

You can customize our online and in-person experiences with live and recorded webinars, podcasts, on-site training and consultation and self-paced modules that best suit your own learning style and schedule. You can also find support, guidance, and insights into program development from our Communities of Practice. Enroll now to get started.

Your training hours qualify as continuing education credits and support your eligibility to take the Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner CPRP certification exam.

Learning a New Approach to Recovery

Led by our training partners, you will be introduced to concepts, tools, and actions to facilitate recovery, encourage hope, and embrace opportunities that are personal to people accessing support. Research shows that services centered on a person’s self-determination and psychiatric rehabilitation reduce the use of avoidable emergency, psychiatric inpatient, and substance use rehabilitation services, in addition to decrease justice system involvement.

Through online and in-person training experience you will:

  • Expand your skills in working with people to access behavioral health services, take charge of their own recovery, and work toward personally meaningful goals.
  • Improve your knowledge and skills in providing recovery-oriented services through effective treatment and supervision.
  • Access training, consultation, and continuing education credit opportunities that support test-readiness for Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner (CPRP) certification. Scholarships and grants to support registration for CPRP exams are also available.
  • Join a sustainable coalition of rehabilitation practitioners that provide training, consultation, and continuing education credit opportunities, as well as scholarships and grants to support CPRP exams.

The New York Psychiatric Rehabilitation Training Academy is funded y the New York State Office of Mental Health.
