Objective For supported accommodation settings in mental health care, there is no comprehensive list of criteria for German-speaking countries available. The development and testing of a fidelity scale for independent housing is described. Methods By means of a cross-country cooperation a fidelity scale was developed and was utilized in interviews with heads of 87 housing services and institutions in Germanyand Switzerland. Results The fidelity scale consists of 31 items in 4 topic fields. Outreach services demonstrated a slightly higher fidelity compared to residential care. This was particularly true for the topic fields ‘Housing conditions’ and ‘Inclusion orientation’. We found not differences in the topic fields ‘Staff/team’ and ‘Support conditions’. Conclusions With this fidelity scale there is a testable list of criteria for independent housing services in mental health care available for the first time in German-speaking countries.
