  1. Needs assessment for persons with severe mental illness : what services are needed for successful community living?

    Article - En anglais

    The development and implementation of effective community support systems are goals of many public mental health authorities who are attempting to shift the focus and dollars for mental health services from inpatient to community care.

    This article presents the results of a survey which asked 90 community mental health agency case managers to assess the community support and residential needs of over 1400 of their clients.

    Medication monitoring and therapy were rated high priority needs.

    Psychosocial treatment, day and vocational activities also ranked high.

    Survey responses regarding residential services indicated a need for more supported and supervised options.
