The U.S. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association is a professional association for practitioners of psychiatric rehabilitation who serve persons and families living with psychiatric disorders.

Founded in 1974 by the directors of the original 13 psychosocial rehabilitation centers in the United States, USPRA promotes evidence-based recovery from mental illness practice and works with government agencies, universities and other institutions.

The PRA issues the Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner, a professional certification designation recognized in 13 states in the U.S. as a qualification for mental health practitioners (with an additional 4 states pending): Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
