This paper introduces the Daily Activities Checklist (DAC), an assessment developed for use with individuals with severe mental illness living in the community. The DAC establishes a baseline of engagement in self-care and instrumental activities of daily living and involves the consumer in the data gathering process. Preliminary information related to the feasibility and reliability of the measure suggests individuals with severe mental illness can accurately complete the assessment. The DAC also discrimated between individuals with severe mental illness that were working and those that were not.
