OBJECTIVE: The main question this research aims to sources of satisfaction, will be described through this research. METHODS: A questionnaire was aplied to the patient with psychosis to gather socio-clinical data. Another questionnaire, aimed at the family caregiver, was carried-out by the investigator to gather psychosocial data, aplication of the data on two scales; the Escala de Avaliação da Espiritualidade scale, Carer’s Assessment of Satisfaction Index (CASI), the Portuguese version. RESULTS: The CASI factors which contribute the most to the family caregiver are the dynamics of the results and the caregiver’s performance. The caring context is the factor which best explains and relates to the variance of the global scale (CASI). A sense of meaning of life, hope and a positive outlook on life can be identified as sources of satisfaction for the family member carrying out the caregiver role. CONCLUSION: There are several sources of satisfaction for the family member, when carrying out the role of caregiver of the mentally persons, which may present themselves as tools for the psychiatric and mental health nurse, aimed to preserve, promote and potentiate his/her capacity in the caring process, with benefits to both the mentally persons and family caregiver.
