Functional Measures. Across the 3-year study period, non-remitted patients scored significantly lower on the GAF, Satisfaction with Fulfilling Basic Needs, and the General Life Satisfaction measures than remitted patients (p < 0.001). Additionally, non-remitted patients were less likely to have Paid Employment across the 3-year study (p < 0.01), but no significant main effect was found for Independent Housing status. A significant visit effect (p < 0.05) was found for the GAF, Satisfaction with Fulfilling Basic Needs, General Life Satisfaction, and for Independent Housing status. There was a significant baseline remission by visit interaction for the GAF and Independent Housing status (p < 0.05).
