This pre posttest study explored feasibility of a mobility program for nine community dwelling adults living with mental disorders. Using mixed methodology, outcome measures included phenomenological pre and post semi-structured interviews, surveys and subscales of Impact of Autonomy and Participation Questionnaire (IPAQ). The IPAQ confidence factor showed statistical significance (p =.034). The majority of participants either maintained or increased trip frequency, participation, knowledge of health problems and transportation, and either maintained or decreased isolation. Qualitative post program themes included increased comfort and self-esteem, as well as confidence and awareness. Results indicate feasibility of the program to be used for this population.
