Results: Among the pathological syndromes, positives ones were
on the average, negative ones were
, and general pathological syndromes were
. In the evaluation of the insights, the mean score was
. There were some significant correlations between positive syndromes and general pathological ones (r=.572, p=.000), and negative syndromes and general pathological ones(r=.262, p=.029), while there was no significant correlation between the insights and the sub-measures of general pathological syndromes. Conclusion: Therefore, the schizophrenic patients taking advantage of the community mental health centers have more negative syndromes than those in hospitalized, and rehabilitation programs are needed to help them continuously. And the further study of the correlations between the pathological syndromes and the degrees of the insights are required, and still, it should be analyzed what effects the insight acquirement brings about to the improvements of the pathological syndromes after the application of the insight-oriented programs.

) of the full score 80. The measuring of respondents' anxiety showed they marked an average of 42.03 (
) of the full score 80. Respondents statistically showed the significant difference in their laughter index depending on age(t=.917, p=.000), and economic status(F=21.710, p=.000). Respondents statistically revealed the significant difference in depression depending on religion(F=3.396, p=.018), economic status(F=13.660, p=.000).

Result: Items for self-care evaluation by gender were significant differences in hospital visit, hypoglycemia preparation, proper hygiene, taking a rest, foot injury check, drinking, and smoking. The female patients are more likely to have higher self-care score than the male patients. However, there were no differences in depression, anxiety and stress response by gender. In male patients, there were positive correlations between the degree of depression and stress response, the degree of anxiety and stress response. In female patients, there were positive correlations between the degree of depression and stress response, the degree of anxiety and stress response.
