Skizofrenia menjadi salah satu gangguan mental yang memerlukan perawatan jangka panjang. Pasien skizofrenia mengalami tingkat ketergantungan yang tinggi dalam melakukan aktivitas sehari-hari terutama kepada keluarga. Situasi ini menyebabkan keluarga sering kali tidak dapat menerima perubahan perilaku yang dialami pasien skizofrenia. Keluarga cenderung menolak, minder, malu, marah, sedih, kecewa dan putus asa. Kegiatan mind body therapy ini dilakukan untuk meningkatkan kembali ekspresi emosi keluarga dalam merawat pasien skizofrenia secara positif. Kegiatan ini dilakukan dengan melatih keluarga untuk merileksasikan seluruh fungsi tubuh sehingga menjadi rileks, kemudian diberikan sugesti positif. Melalui kegiatan ini didapatkan hasil bahwa sebagian besar keluarga merasa lelah, tidak berdaya, cemas, takut, sedih, malu dan selalu marah selama merawat pasien skizofrenia dikarenakan pasien skizofrenia sangat sulit untuk diarahkan. Pada akhir kegiatan, dilakukan penilaian kembali dan diperoleh hasil bahwa keluarga dapat menerima segala perubahan perilaku pasien skizofrenia, memiliki komitmen untuk bersikap baik dengan cara memperhatikan dan memenuhi segala kebutuhan  pasien skizofrenia. Dengan demikian, maka dari kegiatan ini dapat disimpulkan bahwa terdapat peningkatkan ekspresi emosi keluarga dalam merawat pasien skizofrenia.

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that requires long-term care. Schizophrenia patients experience a high level of dependence in doing daily activities, especially to the family. This situation causes the family often can not accept changes in behavior experienced by patients with schizophrenia. Families tend to reject, inferior, ashamed, angry, sad, disappointed and hopeless. This mind body therapy activity is carried out to increase family emotional expression again in treating patients with schizophrenia positively. This activity is carried out by training families to relax all bodily functions so that they become relaxed and then given positive suggestions. Through this activity, it was found that most families feel tired, helpless, anxious, afraid, sad, embarrassed and always angry when treating schizophrenia patients because schizophrenia patients are very difficult to direct. At the end of the activity, a reassessment was carried out and the results were obtained that the family could accept all changes in the behavior of the schizophrenic patient, have a commitment to be kind by paying attention and meeting all the needs of the schizophrenic patient. Thus, from this activity it can be concluded that there is an increase in the expression of family emotions in treating schizophrenic patients.
