Abstract

The Mayers' Lifestyle Questionnaire (2) is a client centred tool which enables people with enduring mental health problems to identify and prioritise issues affecting their quality of life. This article briefly describes how the tool was developed and then describes the main study used to evaluate the Mayers' Lifestyle Questionnaire (2). Eighty-three occupational therapists from around the United Kingdom offered to take part in the study. The results are from data returned by 33 occupational therapists and 75 clients. The occupational therapists and the clients were positive overall in their comments. Three occupational therapists in the study worked with people with brain injury rather than with clients with enduring mental health problems and, having seen and used the tool, they stated that it would prove suitable for some of their clients. The evaluation has led to minor changes being made to the Mayers' Lifestyle Questionnaire (2).
