SALLES, Mariana Moraes  e  BARROS, Sônia. The effect of mental illness on the activity of daily living: a challenge for mental health care. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.1, pp.11-16. ISSN 1982-0194.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002009000100002.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of mental illness on the activity of daily living among individuals living in the community and to examine the options of those individuals for social inclusion. METHODS: This qualitative study was guided by Agnes Heller's conceptualization of daily life. The sample consisted of 13 individuals who received care in a psychiatric hospital and 9 of their family members. Data were analyzed through content analysis. RESULTS: Mental illness affected an individual's social participation and his or her activities of daily living. Although there were less opportunities for social inclusion, individuals with mental illness continued to be able to find other social possibilities. CONCLUSIONS: Mental health services valued the importance of daily life activities, which can promote autonomy and a place in society. It is important to recognize the challenges of individuals with mental illness for inclusion in the job market and interpersonal relationships.
