Book Description:
This book introduces several programs and guidelines that would help to provide housing, employment, and other services to adults with psychiatric disabilities. This book proposes necessary changes in public policies regarding housing, transportation that is reliable and accessible, environments that are physically accessible and opportunities for participation in social and recreational activities. The intention of such change is to ensure that people with disabilities have all the same opportunities and choices as people without disabilities. There is also another accessibility need for people with psychiatric disabilities: attitudinal barriers which continue to prevent people with psychiatric disabilities from full participation. Thus to ensure full participation in the community by people with psychiatric disabilities, this book expands NCD’s livable community framework to be fully inclusive.

This book consists of public domain documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
