Quality of Life Among People with Psychiatric Disabilities: Does Day Centre Attendance Make a Difference?

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The purpose was to investigate (i) how people with psychiatric disabilities who attend day centres experience their quality of life (QoL) compared to non-attendees, (ii) differences in QoL between those who attend meeting place-oriented centres and those who attend work-oriented centres, (iii) possible correlates of QoL among day centre attendees. Ninety-three day centre attendees and 82 non-attendees completed questionnaires addressing QoL and selected correlates. No group difference was found regarding QoL. Factors related with a good QoL were high levels of self-mastery and motivation. Thus, promoting day centre attendees’ self-mastery and motivation might enhance their QoL.
