Abstract

Peer provided interventions are considered to be an additional approach to treatment as usual for mental illness. The word ‘peer’ stands for the goal of persona empowerment, education and recreation. Peer provided interventions improves the quality of life and increases the prognosis of mental illness. Rajah Rehabilitation Centre has been started to coordinate peer provided interventions to schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder since 2016 to provide the opportunity to get more help than from a one-to-one therapeutic session.
