Introduction: To explore the effect of mindfulness-based stress reduction training on hope, psychological well-being and functional recovery of schizophrenia patients.

Materials and methods: A total of 106 schizophrenia patients admitted to our hospital from June 2019 to May 2021 were selected as the research objects, and they were divided into two groups according to the random number table (the observation group and the control group, with 53 cases each). The patients in the two groups received routine nursing intervention, and the patients in the observation group received additional mindfulness-based stress reduction training for 8 weeks. The Herth Hope Index (HHI), Psychological Well-being (PWB) and Functional Remission of General Schizophrenia Scale (FROGS) were used to evaluate the effect before and after the intervention.

Results: Before the intervention, there was no significant difference in the level of hope, psychological well-being and functional indicators between the two groups (P>0.05). After 8 weeks of intervention, the HHI scores in the two groups were significantly higher than before. However, the changes in the HHI scores, PWB scores and FROGS scores in the observation group were significantly greater than those in the control group, and the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Mindfulness-based stress reduction training can significantly improve hope level and psychological well-being of schizophrenia patients, and can also improve the level of function, which is worthy of clinical application.
