The results of the study suggest that religious activities and beliefs may be particularly compelling for people experiencing more severe symptoms, and increased religious activity may be associated with reduced symptoms.

  • Weisman de Mamani, A.G., Tuchman, N., & Duarte, E.A. Incorporating Religion/Spirituality Into Treatment for Serious Mental Illness. Findings from this study indicate that religion and spirituality can often be incorporated into treatment in a way that coalesces with patients’ values and enhances treatment gains.
