A community project to encourage compliance with mental health treatment aftercare.
Rehospitalization of mentally ill persons has been associated mainly with two major factors, noncompliance with the prescribed course of medication and noncompliance with planned aftercare.
The authors developed and pilot tested a community health project designed to assist chronically ill mental health patients who, when discharged from hospital care, are considered at high risk for rehospitalization.
The project was designed to support clients'efforts to comply with their prescribed course of aftercare therapy, support, and medication.
