Specialist work schemes: user satisfaction and costs

  • Justine Schneider and Angela Hallam (a1)
Abstract

This paper is a study of the costs and quality of life of 157 people attending specialist employment schemes for people with long-term mental health problems in southeast England. The research, work force, and the seven work settings are described and differences found between service users in satisfaction, social networks and costs at 1994–95 levels are reported. This is the first such study of work schemes in this country, and while still not generalisable, it supplies valuable empirical evidence for all those concerned with psychiatric rehabilitation.
