Relationship between Spiritual Well-Being and Hallucinations in Patients with Schizophrenia in a Mental Health Hospital

Muhammad Fadly, Budi Anna Keliat

Abstract

Objective: Hallucinations are considered one of the positive symptoms of schizophrenia. However, spiritual nursing intervention for patients with hallucinations has not become the standard of nursing care in a mental-hospital setting. The spiritual well-being of patients with hallucinations has never been measured and examined. This study aimed to determine the relationship between spiritual well-being and hallucination symptoms in patients with schizophrenia.

Methods: This study utilized a cross-sectional study design. A total sampling technique was used to obtain the samples and included 90 patients. This study employed the Spiritual Well-Being Scale and instruments of Hallucination Symptoms Measurement. Spearman correlation was used to analyze the data.

Results: The results suggested that there was a significant correlation between spiritual well-being and hallucinations (p-value < 0.05), in which higher levels of spiritual well-being were correlated with fewer symptoms of hallucinations.

Conclusion: The improvement of spiritual well-being is recommended to be incorporated in the nursing care of individuals with hallucinations.

Keywords: Hallucinations, schizophrenia, spiritual well-being
