 We investigated subjective QOL and the social and clinical factors of patients with mental illness who underwent occupational therapy. The present study included 43 patients (31 outpatients and 12 inpatients). In both the outpatient group (day-care group) and the inpatient group, the proportion of patients who were satisfied with their environment and physical functions was high. On the other hand, the proportion of patients who were satisfied with their acceptance of disability was low.

 There was a close correlation between the participation in an occupational therapy program and the feeling of satisfaction about the social or psychological factors, such as income, personal relationships, desire for affection and family relationships.

 In addition, a close relationship existed between hope for being discharged from the hospital and satisfying a desire for affection. These results suggest that occupational therapy had a positive influence on the subjective QOL of the patients with mental illness.
