ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the physical activity, body-esteem, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in community mental patients. Data were collected from 144 respondents at 2 community mental health welfare center and 2 social rehabilitation center, through self-report questionnaire survey conducted during Dec 2017 to Jan 2018. As a result of this study, the level of physical activity of the subjects were low activity 25%, moderate activity 38.9%, and high activity 36.1%. Body-esteem was significantly associated with education level and economic level. The mean score HRQoL was 0.79 and significantly positively correlated with body-esteem. This study suggested that people with psychiatric disorders suffer from lower HRQoL. Therefore, HRQoL improvement can be expected through nursing interventions that can increase the body’s esteem of mental patients.
