Employability of the Mentally Disabled in the 1970s

  • Roger Morgan (a1) and A. K. Gopalaswamy (a1)

Summary

Of 156 discharged patients, the forty who succeeded in open employment had shown before they left hospital a combination of significantly less clinical disability, less abnormal behaviour, better work performance and better relationships with other people. We specify the approximate levels of these variables that were required to get and hold a job in the 1970s.
