Abstract

Family plays an important role in maintaining and treating a psychotic mental patient in society. Treatment and family support are believed to accelerate the recovery of ex-psychotic mental patients. However, families often face psychosocial problems either directly or indirectly because they have family members who are psychotic. Psychosocial problems include anxiety, stress, loss of hope, loss of sense, shame and guilt. Families are also experiencing financial problems, disruptions in social activity, and physical health damage. Therefore psychoeducation for families with family members who have psychotic mental illnesses is considered very important to improve the quality of life of former mental patients.
