Abstract

While halfway house and foster care programs have returned many chronic mental patients from the state hospital to the community, a number of problems including the patients' lack of acceptance by community residents and the perpetuation of chronicity have remained. Missouri's Foster Community Project has attacked such problems by instituting foster care programs in two rural towns that involve collaboration between state hospital staff and community residents. Initial results, including rehabilitative aspects, appear promising.
