Nurs Times. 2007 May 29-Jun 4;103(22):32-3.

Abstract

This article explores two issues related to the barriers to employment for people with severe mental illness: the mental health service user's perspective; and the efficacy of mental health nurses and community mental health teams. It suggests that clinical practice needs to be modified and further research carried out if these barriers are to be removed. This is a summary: the full paper and reference list can be accessed at nursingtimes.net.
