The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify influencing factors on social adaptation skill and quality of life of chronic mental illness in Korean. Social adaptation among chronic mental illness has been proposed as one influencing factor to maintain health care cost and enhance quality of life. However little research has been done on social adaptation and quality of life among chronic mental illness in Korean. Data were collected over 10 month period on 220 chronic mental ill adult out-patients at eight community mental health center in Seoul, Korea. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and stepwise multiple regression. Results indicated significant positive correlation among social adaptation ability, self-efficacy, social support, self-esteem, ways of coping, and quality of life. Stepwise multiple regression revealed that the most powerful predictor of quality of life was social adaptation ability. The combination of social adaptation ability, self-efficacy, social support, self-esteem, ways of coping accounted for 55% of variance in quality of life. Data form this study suggest that social adaptation ability, self-efficacy, social support, self-esteem, ways of coping are significant influencing factors on quality of life of chronic mental illness in Korean. These results have important implications for the development and testing of social adaptation training program for chronic mental illness. In developing social adaptation training 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.
