The study was conducted to understand the current practice of outpatient behavioral-health OT. A self-developed, internet-based survey was distributed to OT practitioners known to the researchers, followed by snowball sampling. Findings indicate a lack of evidence-based practice in regard to assessments and the OT process. Development of this practice area would aid in community reintegration and the management of chronic behavioral health conditions.
