Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: In this study the aim was to compare internalized stigmatization and quality of life between bipolar disorder and schizophrenia patients who were in remission.
Material and Methods: Patients who were admitted to the psychiatry outpatient clinic of Gaziantep University Faculty with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder or schizophrenia according to DSM-5 were included in this cross sectional study. Assessment tools were the Internalized Stigma of Mental Illness Scale and the World Health Organization Quality of Life Measurement Instrument Short Form.
Results: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder groups were compared according to assessment tools. 58 bipolar disorder and 52 schizophrenia patients were included in the study. The Quality of Life of patients with bipolar disorder was found to be higher than patients with schizophrenia according to mental domain (p = 0.006) and social relationships domain (p = 0.050). Internalized Stigma of schizophrenia patients was higher than patients with bipolar disorder (p = 0.030). Internalized Stigma was higher in female patients with schizophrenia than female patients with bipolar disorder (p = 0.006). There were no significant differences between male schizophrenia patients and patients with bipolar disorder according to quality of life.
Conclusion: Internalized stigmatization is a problem that should be considered in schizophrenia patients, especially in female schizophrenia patients. Internalized stigmatization may result in decreased quality of life in schizophrenia.

Keywords: Internalized stigmatization; quality of life; bipolar disorders; schizophrenia
