Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The purpose of this descriptive, mixed-methods study was to examine perceived impacts of participation in a financial management program for those with mental-health or substance-use disorders. Data from 17 participants included demographics, overall well-being from the PHS-WB scale, and perceived impact of a financial management account program. The research findings can guide OT practitioners in assessment and intervention in this area of occupation.
