Adults with serious mental illness have high rates of obesity, with associated negative impacts on health-related quality of life. The present study utilized data from a randomized controlled trial (N? = 276) to examine the effectiveness of in-person and online-delivered weight management interventions, compared to usual care, for improving health-related quality of life in this population. Participants completed quality of life assessments at baseline, 3 months, and 6 months. Mixed effects models examined group by time interactions. Compared to usual care, in-person MOVE was associated with improvements in loneliness (t? = -?2.76, p? = .006) and mental health related quality of life (t? = 1.99, p? = 0.048) at 6 months, and webMOVE was associated with improvements in weight-related self-esteem at 6 months (t? = 2.23, p? = .026) and mental health-related quality of life at 3 months (t? = 2.17, p? = 0.031) and 6 months (t? = 2.38, p? = .018). Web-based and in-person weight management led to improvements in health-related quality of life for adults with serious mental illness.ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00983476.
