 The purpose of this study was to examine the intervention effect of occupational therapy program promoting well-being in people with mental disorders.


 This study subjects were users of day hospital, psychiatric occupational therapy, and supported employment agency, and the intervention design adopted a non-randomized controlled trial. The control group participated only in the support programs usually addressed at each facility, and the intervention group additionally participated in the occupational therapy program promoting well-being. The intervention period was 8-weeks for both groups and 8-weeks for follow up. The primary outcome measures used Recovery Assessment Scale(RAS), The Positive and Negative Affect Schedule(PANAS), Subjective Well-Being Scale(SWBS), Life Assessment Scale for the Mentally Ill(LASMI), and WHO Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0(WHODAS 2.0). Secondary outcome measures used Assessment of Positive Occupation 15(APO-15), Equating-Assessment of Positive Occupation(EAPO). The analysis was estimated using a linear mixed model so that the results could be obtained considering the effects of random effects such as individual differences and environmental differences.


 The intervention group showed better intervention effect with 5 factors compared with the control group.


 Occupational therapy program promoting well-being has the potential to contribute to the promotion of well-being for mentally disabled people in medical institutions and welfare institutions receiving assistance.
