A qualitative phenomenological design was used to gather the accounts of mental-health consumers with mental illness and community stakeholders in a rural midwestern town in the US. Participants gave personal accounts concerning availability of mental-health services, unmet needs, and recovery. Findings contribute to research concerning rural community treatment programming and exploration and support for how OT has a role on Assertive Community Treatment teams.
