Abstract

To improve the community life of people with mental disorders, job support is an important task. However, measures and policies for people with mental disorders have yet to be implemented, and no sufficient support methods have been established for these patients. We performed a survey to clarify the needs and actual situations of people with mental disorders in Kashiwara City. The items of the survey included local exchange activities, motivation in life, and willingness to work. The survey was completed by 27 subjects. Most of the subjects were welfare-related workers accounting for 41%; none were regular workers. No local exchange activities were noted in 74% of the subjects, while 89% hoped to work. Although the number of subjects in this survey was insufficient to extrapolate the survey results beyond the present situations in Kashiwara City, Osaka Prefecture, there are many people with mental disorders who have a strong willingness to work. So, the trial of employing such people should be done, first of all. The job support for people with mental disorders will be needed in their daily life. It is important that they can feel fulfilled by working in the community and being able to become economically independent.
