Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between the level of depression, mental health and religiosity amongst mentally ill patients in hospital Tanjung Rambutan Ulu Kinta Perak with demographic aspects. The subjects selected were 40 women amongst mentally ill patients in hospital Tanjung Rambutan Ulu Kinta Perak. The assessment method administered consisted of Beck Depression Inventory, General Health Questionnaire-28, Provision and demographic questions. The questionnaires were distributed among the sample followed by a brief introduction about the assessment. Data analysis indicated that there was a significant difference between the age of the sample and their mental health (p=0.005. Furthermore, depression experienced by the victims significantly influenced their mental health (R2=0.70, [F (1, 25) = 41.517, p<0.002]). The study also indicated that there was a positive correlation between mental health and depression (r=0.68). This showed that the higher the level of depression experienced by the samples, the higher the effect of their mental health and religiosity.
