OBJECTIVE: The influence of guideline recommendations and other factors on the utilization of psychosocial interventions in people with severe mental illness was examined.

METHODS: Data from a cross-sectional study of 397 people with severe mental illness were analysed descriptively.

RESULTS: Patients are less likely to receive therapies with a strong recommendation compared to other levels of recommendation. Various other factors are diffusely associated with utilization rates, but no ubiquitous predictors could be identified across all therapies.

CONCLUSION: Current practice in the use of psychosocial interventions does not follow guideline recommendation strength. Interventions with strong recommendations are probably not available across services. Consequently, routine practice is not able to follow guideline recommendations according to their strength. Other consistent predictors could not be identified.
