Abstract

Participants in a long-term sheltered workshop program were followed up to determine their present status, their degree of symptom impairment, and their assessment of the program. The author found the rate of clients' return to work greatly exceeded the rate of rehospitalization. The study also indicated that symptom impairment was not a valid predictor of success in the workshop or adjustment in the community and that satisfaction with the program was closely associated with improved self-esteem.
