Abstract

PURPOSE. To describe outcomes of clients with serious mental illnesses who used regional public mental health services; and what the public mental health system did well or needed to change to better satisfy clients' needs. METHODS. A modal case study analysis method was used with 15 clients. Participants were interviewed three times. FINDINGS. Participants reported dissatisfaction with their social functioning and general health, and unmet needs for case management services, social/recreational activities, and vocational rehabilitation. CONCLUSIONS. The case study method is an effective way for nurses to evaluate public mental health systems and to determine areas for system intervention.
