Abstract

This study surveyed 90 adults with Usher syndrome in the United Kingdom, measuring depressive symptoms, loneliness, and social support and how these related to physical and mental health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Psychosocial well-being was shown to predict physical and mental HRQOL. Increasing depressive symptoms were predictive of poorer physical and mental HRQOL. Higher levels of loneliness predicted poorer mental HRQOL. Finally, increasing levels of social support predicted better mental HRQOL. BMJ OPEN, Vol. 7, No. 1.
