 The Sapporo Mental Health Welfare Center carries out therapeutic intervention for adolescent patients with pervasive developmental disorders. We carried out a clinical study on 30 patients who participated in the study from April 2009 to March 2010. 16 patients were assessed via the SF-36v2, GHQ30, WHO/QOL26, and GAF scales at baseline and endpoint. Outcome data were collected from 28 patients. The changes in the SF-36v2, GHQ30, and WHO/QOL26 that patients self-reported were not statistically significant, but the changes in the GAF scales administered by clinicians were statistically significant. Outcome data also changed positively, and the number of social withdrawal (hikikomori) subjects and non-workers decreased. Therefore, this support program appears to be effective.
