Satisfaction with received mental health services is an important indicator for an effective rehabilitation. This study explores the effectiveness of vocational rehabilitation programs on psychiatric patients at a Mental Hospital in Southern Taiwan. Vocational rehabilitation programs at mental health services have become a focus of concern among mental health professionals for an independent culture, however, does it apply for an interdependent culture. We use multiple regression models to analyze indicators of job satisfaction and types of vocational rehabilitation program on satisfaction with received mental health services for psychiatric patients in an interdependent culture. There are four categories: socio-demographic characteristics, diagnosis, work history variables (as controls), and job satisfaction variable. Like Western studies, job satisfaction, in itself, lead to a better satisfaction with mental health services.
