  1. The relationship between housing characteristics, emotional well-being and the personal empowerment of psychiatric consumer/survivors.

    Article - En anglais

    In this research, we examine the relationships between the housing characteristics and dimensions of community adaptation for 107 psychiatric consumer/survivors.

    Hypotheses about which housing characteristics best predict which dimensions of adaptation were made based on previous research and theory.

    Using a longitudinal research design, we found, after controlling for demographic variables and prior adaptation, that the number of living companions, housing concerns, and having a private room all significantly predicted different dimensions of community adaptation.

    The findings partially support our theoretical expectations and illuminate the relationship between physical, social and organizational aspects of community-based housing and the adaptation of psychiatric consumer/survivors.

    We discuss the implications of the results for policy and practice in providing housing for this population.
