Support in housing: a comparison between people with psychiatric disabilities and people with intellectual disabilities



Support in housing: a comparison between people with psychiatric disabilities and people with intellectual disabilities



Community Mental Health Journal 45(6): 420-426



The primary objective of this study was to compare type of housing and support in housing in two groups (people with psychiatric disabilities and people with intellectual disabilities) typically dependent on support in everyday life. A second objective was to examine whether type of housing and support in housing were related to gender within the two groups. Information was obtained by available questionnaire reports provided by staff members. The results indicate unequal accessibility of support in housing in relation to the two groups. Moreover, the findings suggest that type of disability is a more determining factor than gender regarding support in housing.
