Abstract

Purpose: This study investigated the effects of a mental fitness positive psychology intervention program on the self-esteem and interpersonal relationship ability of inpatients with schizophrenia.

Findings: The program effectively improved participants’ self-esteem and interpersonal relationship ability. Practice Implications: Psychiatric nurses can use this program as a nursing intervention to enhance the self-esteem and interpersonal skills of inpatients with schizophrenia in mental health facilities.
