Milieu is a French word meaning "Middle place". In English language, milieu means "Environment" or "Setting". Therapeutic milieu is a 24 hours environment designed to provide a secure retreat for individuals whose capabilities for coping with  reaiity have deteriorated. The therapeutic milieu gives them opportunities to acquire adaptive coping skills. It is the multidisciplinary therapeutic approach used on  inpatient psychiatric wards.

The term milieu therapy reflects the  idea of  all activities in a ward and are oriented towards increasing a patient's  ability  to cope in  the ward and relate appropriately to others. Milieu therapy generally involves groups and may include art therapy, occupational therapy, activities of daily living, community meeting, group passes and social events.
