Mental disorders are common diseases mainly characterized by the inability to achieve balance and coordination between individual mental activities and their environment. It will not only have a great impact on the patient's own spirit, behavior, psychology and other aspects, but also aggravate the burden of the patient's family and society. In addition to the in-hospital acute treatment, patients still need to receive long-term continuous rehabilitation in the out-of-hospital community. Currently, the recovery process for people with mental disorders is slowed down by the increased prevalence of mental disorders, the low level of national investment in community mental health and the scarcity of community mental health workers. By organizing and analyzing the existing community rehabilitation system for patients with mental disorders at home and abroad, the author aims to provide basis and suggestions for the development of community rehabilitation for patients with mental disorders, call on the country to improve the security system for patients with mental disorders, train more excellent mental health practitioners, and call on everyone to contribute to the rehabilitation of patients with mental disorders. So that they can be fully integrated into society as soon as possible at their best.
