Increase the understanding of the issues faced by people with serious mental illness who want to gain or maintain employment through vocational rehabilitation [ Time Frame: From February 2011 - April 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
In order to explore the issues faced by people with serious mental illness in regard to maintain employment through vocational recovery, it was decided to use a qualitative approach. This approach was selected because it will give an understanding to a range of opinions and attitudes, and the reasons behind these attitudes through the use of open-ended questions. The primary outcome measure will be the range of opinions and attitudes that the representative sample provides.

Important Factors in Integration of Vocational Rehabilitation in Mental Health

The purpose of this study is to explore, through a qualitative approach, how a group of people with serious mental illness experienced the integration of a vocational rehabilitation intervention during their admittance in hospital.

People with serious mental illness admitted to hospital face significant barriers to gain both education and employment. Norway is a high-income welfare society with low unemployment rates, but the employment rates are very high in the population with psychosis and schizophrenia. Norway have a strategy for work and mental health, and through this strategy, the government has supported some pilot projects which focus on new ways of supporting people with serious mental illness in gaining employment. This study focuses on a representative sample participating in a pilot study. The sample consists of admitted patients who have received vocational rehabilitation under admittance. The study design is qualitative in nature with open- ended questions to allow the sample to express their opinions, attitudes and thoughts about the assistance they have had during their rehabilitation stay in hospital.
