Social support-seeking has been shown to improve the outcome of schizophrenia. However, no study to date has documented the impact of social support-seeking on self-perceived quality of life in schizophrenia, particularly not on the relation between symptoms and quality of life. The present study explored this issue with a sample of 58 outpatients diagnosed with schizophrenia without comorbidity. Social support-seeking, symptoms (positive, negative, and extrapyramidal), and multidimensional self-reported quality of life were assessed cross-sectionally. Negative symptoms were inversely related to the quality of life domain of activities of daily living. Other symptoms and social support-seeking were not related to quality of life, and social support-seeking did not interact with symptoms in their relation to quality of life. Social support-seeking may thus not be beneficial (nor disruptive) as a way of coping with symptoms in schizophrenia. More studies are needed in order to investigate the relation of social support-seeking to symptoms and to quality of life in serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, so that interventions with persons suffering from these disorders may be better guided.
