Purpose: The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify relationship among symptoms of stress, family support, hardiness, and symptom management of the patient with chronic mental illness in Korea. Background: The family support, hardiness, and symptom management among the patients with chronic mental illness have been considered as strategies to decreasing factors on symptoms of stress and health problems. However, little research has been done on the relationship among symptoms of stress, family support, hardiness, and symptom management of the patient with chronic mental illness in Korea. Methods: Data were collected over a 6 month period on 259 chronic mentally ill adult out-patients at eight community mental health centers in Seoul, Korea. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and stepwise multiple regression. Results: Results indicated significant positive correlation (P<.05) among family support, hardiness, and symptom management. There were significant negative correlations among family support, hardiness, and symptoms of stress. Also, there was significant positive correlation between symptoms of stress and symptom management. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that the most powerful predictor of symptom management were symptoms of stress (18%). The combination of family support, hardiness, and symptoms of stress accounted for 43% of the variance in symptom management. Data from this study suggest that family support, hardiness, and symptoms of stress are significant influencing factors on symptom management of the patients with chronic mental illness in Korea. Implications: These results have important implications for the development and testing of symptom management program for the patients with chronic mental illness. In developing a symptom management program, the major influencing variables described above need to be carefully evaluated. As the proportion of chronic mental illness population continues to increase, it is essential to develop nursing interventions that are cost effective and maximize quality of life.
