Why participate in IMR?
Education about mental illnesses is the foundation of informed decision-making. The more people understand the basic facts about their mental illnesses, the better equipped they are to speak for themselves and take an active role in their recovery. Practitioners help consumers build social networks and engage supporters in activities that promote recovery and learn to identify early warning signs to prevent relapses. Clients learn new strategies to help them manage their symptoms, cope with stress, and improve their lives.
The average IMR treatment lasts 3-9 months and consists of weekly or biweekly sessions, 60-90 minutes each, as clinically appropriate.
