Unit involved in the project
The Research and Innovation Centre for Rehabilitation, linked to both the School of Social Studies and School of Nursing, will be the central unit involved in the proposed project. It is the only specific centre in this field in the Netherlands.

Rehabilitation is defined here as supporting people with psychiatric disabilities in the exploration, selection and achievement of personal goals and aims concerning their activities and participation in society, improving this participation and their sense of involvement. This support can consist of both individual guidance (skills and resources) and normalization or adaptation of the persons social environment.

With regard to Supported Education programmes, the Centre maintains strong contacts with Community Colleges (involved in adult education), Higher Education institutes and with Mental Health Organizations in the region and nationally.
