Social support and quality of life of Community Support clients.
Two aspects of social support, availability and adequacy, were assessed for 729 severely mentally ill adults enrolled in seven state-supported Community Support Services (CSS) programs as part of repeated questionnaire surveys nine months apart.
Perceived quality of life interviews with the clients were also conducted at both times.
These interviews included the Bradburn Positive and Negative Affect Scales and the Satisfaction with Life Domains Scale (SLDS).
Availability of social support was significantly correlated with positive affect over time, but not with negative affect at either point.
