The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities is a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center, funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research to conduct state-of-the-art research and knowledge translation activities to improve opportunities for community inclusion of people with psychiatric disabilities.
Directed by Mark Salzer, Ph.D. Professor and Chair of Temple Universitys Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, The Temple University Collaborative seeks to:
- target obstacles that prevent people with psychiatric disabilities from fully participating in their communities;
- develop the services and supports consumers and communities need to promote full integration into all aspects of community life; and
- expand the range of opportunities for people who have psychiatric disabilities to participate in their communities as active, equal members.
