Occupational therapy is a profession concerned with what we do in our daily lives and how this both affects and is affected by our health.
- Looking after yourself (self-care)
- Enjoying your life and being with others (leisure and social life)
- Being productive (for example, work or college activities).
The main goal of occupational therapy is to support you to take part in the everyday activities that matter to you. Occupational therapy aims to contribute to your sense of wellbeing, independence and satisfaction in daily life.
