Abstract

This report explores participants’ satisfaction with Assertive Community Treatment Programs in Ontario, Canada through a general satisfaction questionnaire that includes three open-ended questions. Open-ended questions are a simple tool for obtaining more detail about areas of satisfaction and dissatisfaction, and responses seem to be less influenced by social desirability than quantitative ratings. Participants particularly used the opportunity of answering open-ended questions to express feelings about their relationships with the team workers.
