Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

For adults using mental health services it is envisaged that the single largest outcome would be employment status.This paper describes a pilot survey on the employment status of mental health consumers serviced by the Hamilton Huntly team in the Waikato region of New Zealand and suggests a way forward. The author concludes by recommending that adult mental health service providers should employ occupational therapists as employment specialists within multi-disciplinary treatment teams to achieve better employment outcomes.
