The purpose of this study was to depict the quality of life the chronic schizophernics are experiencing in the community, with the aim of providing and appropriate care plan for these individuals. To this end the Wiscosin – Quality of life index (W-QLI) was administered to a sample of one hundred randomly selected patients who lived within the catchment area of the Shaheed Esmaeili Psychiatric Centre. The findings indicated that half of the patients enjoyed a medium level of satisfaction as far as the occupational activities, general satisfaction, social relations, psychological well being and physical health dimension of the index are concerned. One third experienced a low level of satisfaction as regards to mental and physical health domains. No significant correlations were found between the quality of life and patient's demographic variables. Comparing the results of patients under active follow up program and those who did not receive such services may partly explain these differences.
