Critically Appraised Topic
Gail Bass/Devon Olson Lambert
Homeless veterans are challenged with chronic mental health and substance abuse disorders that affect their abilities to carry out their daily functions. There is a paucity of focused literature to address the extent to which occupational therapy interventions help chronically homeless veterans that struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues. The purpose of this critically appraised topic paper was to investigate and demonstrate the extent to which substance abuse and mental health occupational therapy programs may help to increase the performance range of self-management skills of chronically homeless veterans.
