MetadataShow full item record
Objective: To investigate whether comorbid physical health conditions hinder employment for people with psychiatric disabilities. Method: A secondary analysis of a 12-month longitudinal natural observation study. Community residents (n = 104) with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder were interviewed at baseline, 6 and 12 months. Results: Comorbid physical health conditions were negatively associated with employment status. Conclusions: More attention to physical health conditions may improve outcomes in psychiatric vocational rehabilitation.
