The importance of women mental health has been overlooked for a long time. Even women themselves often ignore this issue. However, there is few research related to how women look at their own mental health or their perspectives about mental health in Taiwan. The purpose of this study was to investigate Taiwanese women?s perspectives about their mental health. The data was collected by focus group method. Four focus groups were hold and there were 4-7 members in each group. The members include primary school teachers, college students, hospital volunteers and agents of insurance. In total, 23 women whose age ranging from 20 to 57 years old attended this study. All four group discussions were recorded and transcribed. The narratives were analyzed by using Grounded theory. In this data analysis, four domains of the mental health were emerged: (a) Self domain: including appearance, self-efficacy, emotional state, environmental mastery, purpose in life, resilience, self-acceptance, personal growth, and autonomy; (b) Interpersonal relationship domain: including positive relationship, social acceptance, and caring about others; (c) Family domain: including parenting, family relationship, caring about family; (d) Social domain: including female role, social role, social coherence, moral regulation, social actualization, social contribution, and social integration. The results can be used as a guideline to develop instrument for measuring women?s mental health. Further, it can also help health professionals to understand the women?s perspectives about mental health.
