Abstract: This research concerns the socio-professional reintegration of people with severe mental disorders. It aims to provide an understanding of their reintegration path in the market of regular employment, that from the viewpoint of the stakeholders and through a consideration of the social contexts in which they operate. Our study is guided by three objectives: (1) to identify elements at the individual and environmental levels likely to facilitate reintegration of people with mental disorder; (2) to identify obstacles at the individual and environmental levels likely to impede their reintegration in employment; (3) to understand the impact of vocational rehabilitation in the individual and social spheres and the users' perceptions about professional reintegration. Our conceptual framework is based on the notion/paradigm of recovery, the latter being understood as a multidimensional and nonlinear process. Our methodological approach is qualitative and rely on data collection made at EquiTravail, a community organization based in Quebec City whose mission is to promote the integration, reintegration and retention in the labor market for individuals with severe mental disorders. We carried out individual semi-structured interviews with four users and one focus group with four practitioners. The material was subjected to thematic content analysis. Our results illustrate that individual components as well as elements from the environment and those pertaining to the person-environment interaction are crucial in the socio-professional reintegration process. The success of the professional integration process is not only based on individual responsibility, but also on the interaction between individual components and environmental aspects revolving around the individual. The implications of these findings for research and practice are also discussed.
