Psychosocial Rehabilitation encourages personal recovery, successful community incorporation and pleasing quality of life for persons who have a mental sickness or mental health distress. During the phase of COVID-19 the psychosocial rehabilitation's services and supports performed a collaborative role, person directed, individualized, and a vital element of the human services spectrum.  It helps in developing skills and access resources needed to increase their capacity to be successful and satisfied in the living, working, learning and social environments of their choice and include a wide continuum of services and supports. In this article we have explained about how the psychosocial rehabilitation during the phase of COVID-19 played a great role and given a new dimension of management. Its strategies vary according to patients’ needs, the setting where the rehabilitation is provided (hospital or community), and the culture and socioeconomic condition of the country.
