James has got a mental health illness called schizophrenia, he was in the hospital, and he is still in his recovery stage.

It utilises the coded language she developed to capture the nature of a person’s ability when performing an occupation (Meaningful activity).
This is a brief background about James:
James has got a mental health illness called schizophrenia, he was in the hospital, and he is still in his recovery stage. The Occupational Therapist OT (Simon) has been doing a follow-up with him to know how he is doing and where he needs support more to know how to continue his treatment with him.
James told Simon the areas he particularly needs improvement on. He needs to improve on his self-care (lose weight, washing, clean his flat) he talks about cooking his meal as well which will help him with his diet.
James loves reading books and magazines because it helps with his sanity.
James enjoys his lectures time like walking, reading poetry, fiction, philosophy, politics, and economics, he listens to music too.
Simon asked James to mention 5 areas that are important to him, and he said losing weight, listening to music, diet, reading and buddy scheme.
Simon asked James how he feels he is doing this thing and he said he wants to focus more on losing weight and diet that was why the assessment was first done on his cooking (know how to start planning his meal for a week).
