Background: during the last decades of the 20th century, many psychiatric hospitals changed their chronic psychiatric clients' living environments. Aims: we investigated the effect of this rehabilitation and normalization process on clients' activity and participation level.

Results: our theoretical model is largely supported by the data. It demonstrates that more normal living environments have a positive effect on clients' activity and participation level.

Conclusions: environmental psychiatric rehabilitation is an effective means by which to improve clients' activity and participation level
