One effective way to meet the demands of clients with mental health issues is through collaboration between the formal educational system and clinical setting. This report shares example of such a collaboration and its benefits for various aspects of services delivery. In this report we discuss a relationship between a psychiatric rehabilitation centre and one department of occupational therapy education in Iran, in the form of three activities: collaboration, education and research activities. This cooperation has improved the services. Moreover, it has encouraged occupational therapy students to have a better understanding of their involvement in the field of psychosocial rehabilitation.
