Occupational therapy (OT)

Mental health and the moral treatment era have been recognized as the root of occupational therapy. OT is the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, or maintain meaningful activities, or occupations, of individuals, groups, or communities. It is an allied health profession performed by occupational therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants. OTs often works with people with mental health problems, disabilities, injuries, or impairments. Occupational therapists address the need for rehabilitation following an injury or impairment. When planning treatment, occupational therapists address the physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and environmental needs involved in adult populations across a variety of settings. OTs focuses on prevention and treatment of mental illness in all populations. Mental health illnesses that may require occupational therapy include schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, trauma- and stressor-related disorders (e.g. post-traumatic stress disorder or acute stress disorder), obsessive-compulsive and related disorders such as hoarding, and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and learning disorders. OT is the therapy opted for all types of mental disorders.
