A few decades ago, persons suffering from severe and persistent mental disorders spent long periods of their lives in mental hospitals in dismal conditions. Due to advancements in treatment and the professional assistance by community mental health services this “vulnerable group” can today lead a largely satisfactory life “in the community”. In Austria, a wide array of welfare-funded non-profit psychosocial organisations (PSOs) provide social psychiatric therapy with employed multi-professional teams in ambulatory and mobile services, day structures, occupational projects and small-scale residential facilities. Since these services are essentially based on face-to-face contacts and movement in the community, the PSOs were hit at their core by the corona lockdown. In the present project 70 PSOs in three Austrian provinces, caring for persons with severe mental disorders (e.g. schizophrenia; excluded were dementia, substance abuse and intellectual disability), were invited to take part in an anonymous online survey.
