Occupational therapy (OT) works with you so that you are able to do the things that you want and need to do in your everyday life.
In OT, you identify, practice, and enhance skills that help you perform your activities of daily living, examine and modify your environment if needed, and adapt activities to make them achievable.
In the realm of mental health, OT focuses on building the skills and accessing the supports you need to manage and cope with your symptoms on a daily basis and throughout all of your life transitions.
In your occupational therapy treatment you might work on social skills, organization/planning strategies, attention strategies, stress management techniques, emotion regulation, and self-advocacy skills.
The goal is for you to be able to successfully use these skills at home, at school, at work, and in the community!
