dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of physical health and mental health on quality of life reports in people with serious mental illness. Examining the role of physical health is especially important in this population due to increased rates of medical comorbidity. This study differs from previous research as it directly compares the influence of mental health factors to physical health factors in a quality of life model. A total of 49 participants completed a quality of life inventory, a health survey, and provided subjective ratings of current clinical symptoms. Results indicate that people with SMI are at least as concerned with their physical health as they are their mental health. Findings further suggest that physical health is a stronger predictor of overall quality of life, even after controlling for depressive and psychiatric symptoms, and limitations due to mental health. Areas of future research are discussed.eng
