AbstractA descriptive qualitative research method was used in this study. In this study, five women were asked to describe their perceptions of how effective the Psychiatric Wellness Clinic interventions were in controlling their depression symptoms. With the decreased availability of state funding, the standard form of treatment was no longer available. This Psychiatric Wellness Clinic concept was developed as a mechanism to provide this patient population with skills that would empower them to take care of themselves and decreased dependency on the system. This researcher wanted to see if the clients felt that the program had make them feel less depressed. If so, it would be inferred that the clients were participating in controlling their own mental health well being. The findings in this study indicate that clients do perceive the Psychiatric Wellness Clinic as effective in decreasing depression symptoms.
