Objective: The objective is to identify the factors that influence the experiences and daily life attitudes of women with severe mental disorders (SMD). Method: A search for studies published from 2000 to 2014 was conducted in electronic databases. All relevant primary studies were screened using integrative methods. Findings were synthesized thereafter. Results: Fifteen articles were included. A total of 21 factors were identified as being associated with experiences and daily life attitudes of women with SMD. These factors consisted of the following five categories: strengths and limitations regarding self-care behavior and healthcare delivery, unmet healthcare needs, psychosocial vulnerabilities underlying SMD, gains and challenges of motherhood, and adoption of coping strategies. Conclusions: Healthcare providers can greatly contribute to improving the quality of healthcare for women with SMD, but several barriers need to be overcome. (C) 2015 Elsevier Inc.
