This study examined the patterns of services provided to individuals with serious and persistent mental illness during their first year in an intensive case management program.
Services in 10 content areas were examined, and patterns for more versus less « successful » individuals were compared.
Differences emerged for services focusing on family and housing, suggesting that the need for community support services influences the need for continued intensive case management.
Linear reductions in rehabilitation services suggest that such services may indeed be effective early in the treatment process.
Finally, differences among case managers in service patterns for 5 of the 10 content areas suggest that case managers play an important role in determining the course of treatment.
