LOPEZ ALVAREZ, Marcelino et al. Work and employment for people with severe mental disorders: Some proposals based on the available information. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2004, n.89, pp.31-65. ISSN 2340-2733.

There is an increassing interest, in the field of the community care for people with severe mental illness, for vocational rehabilitation and employment topics. As much in United States as in Europe there are developing, simultaneously, new initiatives and an increasing number of research that are contributing new knowledge to this important field, to which, with some delay, we are also incorporating in our country. In this context, the paper starts with a review of the above topic, as a basis for proposing and debating some guidelines that also takes the most general aspects from our experience in Andalusia. To this respect we expose the general characteristics that, in our opinion, should have a programme to facilitate work and employment for people with severe mental illness.

Keywords : Vocational Rehabilitation; Employment; Work Integration; People with Severe Mental Disorders.
