Abstract

The current debate about how to provide housing for persons with persistent psychiatric disabilities should be informed by empirical information from a variety of sources. Data from a study of 17 residents discharged from Regeneration House Inc., illustrates the value of consumer perceptions in the evaluation of supportive housing. Extensive exploration of the positive and negative aspects of living in a group home from the perspective of experienced residents provides useful input for programme planning. The implications of the findings for the individual programme and the wider field are discussed.
