Aims: As a psychological stressor, war imposes a wide range of consequences in a variety of personal and social contexts. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation of religious commitment with hardness and mental health in veterans' spouses.
Instruments and Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted in 2017 among all veterans' spouses with injury percentage of 25-49% in Karaj. Based on Morgan's table, 250 people were selected as sample, using simple random sampling method. For data collection, Worthington's Religious Commitment Inventory, Kobasa’s Hardiness Questionnaire, and Mental Health Questionnaire were used. The data were analyzed by Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis tests, using SPSS 24 software.
Finding: There was a positive and significant correlation between religious commitment and hardness (r=0.206; p=0.040), mental health (r=0.122; p=0.027), and its components including physical symptoms (r=0.273; p=0.027), anxiety (r=0.239; p=0.023), social dysfunction (r=0.319; p=0.037), and depression (r=0.239; p=0.042). Also, 4% of variance of hardness (p=0.05) and 15% of variance of mental health (p=0.02) were predicted by religious commitment.
Conclusion: There is correlation between religious commitment with hardness and mental health among veterans' spouses; as the veterans' spouses with high religious commitment have more hardness and mental health.
