PRJ encourages submissions regarding mechanisms of change in rehabilitation and psychosocial treatment programs, evaluation studies of model programs, and investigations of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of programs conducted in "real world" settings. Descriptive studies of "cutting edge" programs, those informed by the lived experience of mental illness, are also welcome. Topics include: studies of the development, refinement, or evaluation of psychiatric rehabilitation or psychosocial treatment programs, including rigorous case studies, open pilot studies, quasi-experimental designs, and randomized controlled trials, research on the implementation of rehabilitation or psychosocial treatment programs, including studies of organizations and organizational change.
Topics continued: studies of peer support or other peer provided interventions for persons living with serious mental illness, qualitative or quantitative research addressing important domains of functioning for psychiatric rehabilitation, such as employment, education, parenting, housing, social relationships, community inclusion, health, and well-being, studies of evidence-based interventions, recovery-based care, and their integration, research on special populations of people with serious mental illnesses, studies focusing on special needs or disparities in access to, or outcomes from rehabilitation or psychosocial treatments for minority populations based on characteristics such as ethnicity, race, religion, culture, or sexual orientation.
