Purpose: To examine “the relationship between depressive symptoms and subjective well-being in newly admitted patients with schizophrenia.”

Results: The Subjective Well-Being Under Neuroleptics Scale score was significantly negatively correlated to the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale depression factor score, suggesting that “depressive symptoms are significantly associated with a low subjective well-being in newly admitted patients with schizophrenia and that the relationship is significant even after controlling for the influence of potential confounding variables.”
