3. Résumé


According to the authors, «[f]amilies are invested in, and highly influential, in the recovery process of persons with serious mental illness living in structured community housing. Yet they have been excluded from consideration in the planning and delivery of housing services for this population. Social workers have a major role to play in incorporating families into the planning of housing services if the recovery process toward independent living is to succeed.» (p. 62)
