Self- Evaluation Tool to Support Implementation of Treatment for Tobacco Use Disorder in Behavioral Health Programs

Correlates of Attendance in a Peer-Led Healthy Lifestyle Intervention for People with Serious Mental Illness Living in Supportive Housing
This study examined attendance of participants (N = 155), largely comprised of racial and ethnic minorities, in a peer-led healthy lifestyle intervention living in supportive housing. A logistic regression model was used to identify correlates associated with attendance. Results indicated that females, those with at least a high school education, and a diagnosis of schizophrenia were more likely to attend. In contrast, the odds of attending at least one session were significantly lower for those who reported any drug use and for those who rated their health as good or excellent. Our findings indicate certain subgroups of p...

Evaluation of an Advocacy Programme for Mental Health Care Users in South Africa: A Mixed Methods Study
This study evaluates the implementation of a national advocacy programme for mental health care users, conducted by the South African National Department of Health and the South African Federation for Mental Health.
