Mental health professionals have a responsibility to ensure the best possible quality of care. Family is strongly involved in the patient’s everyday life. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between health care professionals’ perception of the quality of care, attitudes of family involvement and their own sense of coherence. A descriptive quantitative study with fifty-six health professionals, completed “Quality in Psychiatric Care–Community Outpatient Psychiatric Staff”, “Families’ Importance in Nursing Care–health professionals’ attitudes”, “The Sense of Coherence Scale-13”. The health professionals perceived quality as high and did not perceive the families as a burden.
