This chapter covers interventions with people who need encouragement with cooking or shopping due to motivational, cognitive, and information-processing difficulties associated with severe mental illness. Community outreach allows an in vivo approach to supporting these tasks that enable people to survive outside of hospital and which contribute to their quality of life. Functional assessment, activity analysis, and collaborative goal setting are discussed, together with ways of measuring progress. The evidence base for interventions such as social skills training is critiqued. A case study and summary care plan illustrate typical approaches with patients in the community.
