Abstract [en]

In the 1970s a restructuring relating to care, support and services for people with mental disabilities begun, where for example the responsibilities between county council and municipality were clarified. The society's view of people with mental disabilities is stigmatized, but as a result of the restructuring this started to change. The restructuring has helped people with mental disabilities to integrate into the society, rather than staying at a mental hospital as they did before. The integration has resulted in more outpatient care where housing is one of the interventions. This study aims to describe how people with mental disabilities perceive their housing support and also intends to examine the benefits and disadvantages with housing support, the relationships with housing supporters and the significance of involvement. Using a qualitative approach, the study is based on five semi-structured interviews to get a deep understanding of the individuals' experiences of the intervention. The conclusion of the study is that housing is perceived to be an effective intervention since it mainly aims to create structure and routines in the everyday life. Although the experiences are beneficial there are some shortcomings, primarily since housing supporters question the needs of those using the housing support. Other factors being essential for a successful housing support system are the relation to the housing supporters and the person's sense of participation and empowerment.
