Abstract

Needs assessment is key in mental health rehabilitation. Using a representative sample of consumers with severe mental disorders living in supervised housing in Montréal, Québec, the study describes consumer needs and variables associated with the adequacy of help provided. Descriptive, component, and regression analyses were performed. Four needs components, including 20 domains, were examined. Greater adequacy of help was found to be associated with five variables: "daytime social relations"; number of needs; number of unmet needs; gender; and help from services. Components associated with "daytime social relations" and "higher social needs" would be more effectively addressed by integrated healthcare providers.
