Abstract [en]

A freedom-of-choice reform within mentalhealth day center services was evaluated. The reformaimed to (1) facilitate users’ change between units and (2)increase the availability of service providers. Seventy-eightusers responded to questionnaires about the reform,empowerment, social network, engagement and satisfactionand were followed-up after 15 months. Fifty-fourpercent knew about the reform. A majority stated thereform meant nothing to them; *25 % had a negative and*20 % a positive opinion. Satisfaction with the serviceshad decreased after 15 months. Empowerment decreasedfor a more intensively followed subgroup. No positiveconsequences of the reform could thus be discerned.
