How was MORS tested?

MORS was tested for reliability at the MHA Village in Long Beach, California and Vinfen Corp in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Its validity was substantiated by the Center for Behavioral Research and Services (CBRS) at California State University Long Beach in 2005.  An article entitled “Psychometric Properties of an Assessment for Mental Health Recovery Programs,” about the creation of the scale and related research, was published in the Community Mental Health Journal in July 2009.
