Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

This study explores service providers’ perceptions of the role of occupational therapy (OT) in community-based mental health settings. The current literature does not allow for a clear understanding of the role of OT in mental health, but it does identify the benefits of OT services through meaningful occupations.
