Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Consideration of transitional housing in the forensic mental-health context has been limited. Largely, macro outcome measurement (recidivism or community tenure) has guided this work. While compelling, this does not speak to occupational performance outcomes or the practical impacts of day-to-day participation for consumers. Employing a qualitative phenomenological methodology, this study focuses upon consumer lived experience in transitional housing within the forensic mental-health context.
