Journey of IMR Implementation in Brunei Darussalam

Siti Norazmizah Haji Awang Tengah , K. Hi Kassim

This paper describes the journey and process of conducting Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) programs in Brunei Darussalam to the current date. In the last decade, Occupational Therapy has focused on activities of daily living as a non-standardised form of assessment and treatment approach for clients with mental illness in Brunei Darussalam. Most of the treatment models used are conservative and are effective in reducing the symptoms but they do not prevent relapses and assist in empowerment of clients. This awareness led to the search for evidence-based practices to improve outcomes. IMR program was initially implemented in RIPAS Hospital, Brunei by Occupational Therapist for clients from Psychiatric Day Hospital.
