Occupational Rehabilitation Centers
for people with psychiatric disability

Satisfied employees

This is the worldview of Shavim’s training centers for people with psychiatric disability. Occupational rehabilitation is not only about acquiring a profession, but rather a holistic service that combines guidance and occupational training that is optimally compatible with your capabilities, skills, and ambitions, coupled with providing tools for a normal life in the personal, family, and financial spheres. This is done with the close and personal guidance of the professional teams, with boundless dedication, support, encouragement, and no less importantly - in complete cooperation with you and at your pace. All this and more...


Our ultimate goal is to further increase the number of people with psychiatric disability who work in the free market after completing the occupational training process with us. That’s why we initiate and develop new and creative models that increase the rehabilitation options for the occupational training and integration of our service recipients. These exclusive and innovative initiatives include the establishment of the Shavim Plus Guidance Centers, implementation of the OJT program, which is based on training while working (on-the-job), and as always, we continue to develop employment initiatives and designated in-service training workshops such as: computer studies, sales stands, arts center, and more. These are all implemented by our ten nation-wide training centers. Would you like to continue one step further?

What is occupational rehabilitation?

None of us have a guarantee against the upheavals of life. An unplanned event, accident, trauma... All these and more can result in a regression of a person’s functional abilities and to a mental breakdown, inability to hold down a job, or to live a normal life.

The goal of occupational rehabilitation is to help you acquire a profession that is compatible with your capabilities, skills, and ambitions, and to reintroduce you to the workforce and later to open doors to the free market.


The process includes: assessing and identifying your vocational abilities and ambitions, developing a personalized occupational rehabilitation plan, training for employment skills in sheltered workshops, supplemental education, developing employment initiatives, finding employers and continued guidance, support and encouragement to maintain achievements on the job for the long-term...
