Service delivery and community: social capital, service systems integration, and outcomes among homeless persons with severe mental illness

"This study evaluated the influence of features of community social environment and service system integration on service use, housing, and clinical outcomes among people who are homeless with serious mental illness. Conclusions were drawn that community social capital and service system integration are related through a series of direct and indirect pathways with better housing outcomes, but not with superior clinical outcomes for homeless people with mental illness. Implications for designing improved service systems are discussed (authors)." [From]
