BST is a rehabilitative service whose goal is to reduce cognitive and behavioral impairment and to restore service recipients to their highest levels of functioning. BST uses positive reinforcement, modeling, operant conditioning, and other training techniques and aligns these techniques to the cognitive and behavioral impairments of an identified mental health condition. Patients' mental health conditions often require training in functional skills, appropriate behaviors, activities of daily living, use of community resources, assistance with medication management, and monitoring of health, nutrition, and physical health. BST is NOT companion care.
