About Occupational Therapy
Mental Health Occupational Therapists (OT's) can help you if your mental health interferes with your ability to do the activities (occupations) necessary for living your life. For example:
1. Self-care: OT's can help you to improve how you take care of your physical and mental health.
2. Productivity: provide help for you to manage work, school and college stress more effectively. Or alternatively help you to link in with work/ vocational courses if you're trying to develop a more productive routine.
3. Leisure activities: assist you to participate in enjoyable activities with or without others. This can be achieved through meaningful goal setting and practice going out into the community and attending to leisure pursuits.
OT's work holistically alongside a person with the perspective that the person,
occupation and environment are all linked and intertwined.
OT's will address each of these areas to ensure that all of the barriers to a
living a meaningful life are being worked on.
