Evaluation of bridging institution and housing--a joint consumer-care provider initiative.

Abstract

1. The most common alternative housing choice in the community for individuals with serious mental illness was a boarding home. 2. Community consumers noted that being with other people was the most important benefit of the teaching apartment, followed by eating, learning new skills, and entertainment. 3. Although they reported negative aspects about the homes, most consumers did not want to change anything about their boarding home.
