Abstract

Professionals have traditionally accomplished rehabilitative program development at public inpatient psychiatric facilities with limited input from program users. This report describes initial results and observations associated with the introduction of a user-controlled decision-making council built into the program development design of an evolving treatment mall at a state facility. Participant productivity and the satisfaction expressed by participants with regards to this approach captured the attention of staff facilitators and clinical managers, providing a sound basis for future impact studies.
