Educating on Accepting Diagnosis

Psycho-Education

This program is aimed at educating the client and their family members to accept and understand the client’s diagnosis. It also helps in the de-stigmatization of psychological illnesses and to diminish barriers to treatment as well as encourage the adherence to medication as prescribed.

Through an improved view of the causes and the effects of the illness, psychoeducation frequently broadens the client’s view of their illness. This way, the client’s relapse risk is lowered and prognosis improved.
