There is growing consensus that mental illness is a chronic and incurable lifetime disorder. Psychiatric consumers require the knowledge and skills to understand, manage, and recover from their conditions. Regardless of specific type, psychiatric disorders require long-term education, understanding, management, and lifestyle changes. An educational model of psychiatric music therapy focusing on illness management and recovery may be a dynamic, engaging, and motivating contributor to the contemporary treatment milieu for psychiatric in- and outpatients. Incorporating prodromal symptoms and coping skills into the educational model of music therapy for illness management and recovery is paramount to provide psychiatric consumers with the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent psychiatric relapse and facilitate recovery.
