Abstract: Mood disorders are brain disorder that causes changes in a person?s mood, energy and ability to function in their daily life. This condition may make work and other day to day activities difficult, and also may cause people to abuse alcohol or drugs, and make it harder for people to take care of their health. And therefore this disorder can have serious effects on a person?s quality of life. A descriptive non - experimental research method was used to achieve the objectives of the study. The study was conducted in the outpatient department of LGBRIMH with 100 participants and they were selected by purposive sampling technique. The investigator assessed the quality of life by administering WHOQOL - BREF scale which has 26 items.
