Chronically institutionalized patients demonstrate a behavioral pattern characterized by unwillingness to get discharged from the hospital and severe anxiety during such attempts leading to continued hospitalization. These patients usually have poor self-concept and low evaluation in getting employment, which requires vocational rehabilitation. To prevent this, mental health professionals should make active efforts to develop a favorable attitude of the chronic mentally ill patients towards their home.
