Critical time intervention (CTI), which originated as an approach to preventing homelessness, provides an intensified level of services during high-risk periods to promote treatment engagement over the longer term. Lisa Dixon, M.D., M.P.H., and colleagues found that brief CTI targeted at the point of inpatient discharge improved continuity of care in the community for veterans with serious mental illness (page 451). Case managers are often charged with the task of keeping consumers engaged in treatment. Using qualitative methods, Victoria Stanhope, M.S.W., Ph.D., and colleagues analyzed in-depth interviews with case managers of adults who disengaged from housing programs. Although most spoke of disengagement as an inevitable part of their work—and few reflected on the program's role in disengagement—case managers were willing to heal ruptured relationships so that consumers would receive needed services (page 459). To better understand risk factors for homelessness, Katherine H. Shelton, Ph.D., and colleagues interviewed young adults six years after they had enrolled in a national study of adolescent health. About 5% reported ever being homeless, and the most powerful risk factors were related to childhood adversity, such as separation from parents (page 465). Of the many housing interventions for persons with severe mental illness, which achieve the best outcomes? To answer this question, H. Stephen Leff, Ph.D., and colleagues conducted a detailed meta-analysis of 44 unique housing alternatives described in 30 studies (page 473).
