Predictors of psychosocial outcomes for patients with mood disorders: the effects of self-help group participation.

Author information

School of Social Work, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 48109-1106, USA.


This study examined the predictors of psychosocial outcomes (daily functioning and management of illness) for people with mood disorders. After controlling for demographic, severity of illness, and social support predictor variables, the study evaluated whether participation in self-help groups would predict improved psychosocial outcomes. Post-hospitalization data were examined for 144 mood disorder patients using hierarchic multiple regression. More education predicted improved daily functioning; self-help involvement and education predicted management of illness. The implications of these findings for providing recovery-oriented rehabilitation services are discussed.
