About Occupational Therapy

What is occupational therapy?

The term “occupation” refers to the activities of daily living that are essential for surviving and promoting a meaningful life.

Essential activities include:
  • Self- care
  • Work/Play
  • Education
  • Leisure

Occupational Therapists believe that “occupations” describe who you are and how you feel about yourself. If you are unable to do the things you want, or need to live and enjoy life, your general well-being may be affected.

Our therapist will evaluate your loved one through clinical observations, interviews, and the use of assessment tools. Through collaboration, recommendations will be tailored specific to your loved one. We will work with you to develop individualized goals to assist your loved one to be more successful in all aspects of everyday living.

The overall goal of occupational therapy in community mental health is to help people develop the skills and obtain the supports necessary for successful independent living.
