The Evidence on Supported Housing
Debra J. Rog
This study reviews the evidence base for supported housing that was initially prepared for the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation's initiative "Blazing New Trails: Texas Consensus on Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services". In particular, the article describes the principles for guiding the implementation and delivery of supported housing that were accepted by TDMHMR. The article closes with cautionary notes about the evidence base on supported housing; the gaps in knowledge that remain; and the steps that can be taken to continue to add to the knowledge base.
