Occupational therapy practice in the field of mental health is based on an understanding of the relationships between occupation, health and wellbeing and a belief in the potential of people with mental health problems to learn and grow. Health and wellbeing are supported by engagement in a balanced range of occupations that are chosen and valued by the individual. Conversely, having too few occupations or limited choices can lead to poor mental health. When a person is unable to engage in occupation, whether due to personal, social or environmental factors, the Occupational Therapist works with her or him to develop skills, challenge inequalities and promote social inclusion.
