Recovery-oriented psychosocial strategies enhancing independent living and social skills (such as life skills and social skills training)

[Updated 2015]

Recommendation(s)

Recovery-oriented psychosocial interventions (e.g., life skills training, social skills training) to enhance independent living skills can be offered for people with psychotic disorders (including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) and for their families and/or caregivers.

Facilitation of assisted living, independent living and supported housing that is culturally and contextually appropriate may be considered as an option for people with psychotic disorders (including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder). Careful consideration should be given to the functional capacity and the need for stability and support when advising and facilitating optimal housing arrangements.
Strength of recommendation: CONDITIONAL
Quality of evidence: VERY LOW
