Abstract

Objective: The purposes of the study were to explore the effect and difficulties of the application of a supportive employment program in clients with severe mental disorder at a general hospital and to put forward feasible solutions. Patients and Methods: There were 78 participants in this study. All participants received medical and vocational services from an outpatient vocational rehabilitation clinic at a general hospital. Results: Six employment chances were developed, and 16 participants were employed. Difficulties identified by this study were the integration of specialties, limits of medical insurance reimbursement, and few employment opportunities. Conclusions: The results and discussions of this study can be applied to future vocational rehabilitation programs in an attempt to provide better community rehabilitation services for clients with psychiatric disabilities.
