Background: Nowadays psychological well-being is one of the important subjects in the studies of chronic diseases. Cardiovascular diseases are directly due to some wrong behaviors of people, their psychological traits, stress and anxiety. The aim of this study was to study and describe the psychological well-being components of heart patients referred to Ekbatan hospital of Hamedan.

Methods: Method of research is survey and its type is descriptive. 82 heart patients of Ekbatan hospital of Hamedan were selected with available sampling method. Subjects completed Ryff Psychological Well-Being Scale. The data was analyzed using SPSS-16, descriptive statistical methods and Manova method.

Results: Findings indicated that mean of psychological well-being in heart patients is 257.5 and mean of personal growth, purpose in life, environmental mastery, self-acceptance, autonomy and positive relations with others are 45.085, 44.866, 44.537, 45.33, 47.733 and 50.5, in order. Also, there was statistically significant difference between psychological well-being components in men and women (p< 0.05); while, there was no statistically significant difference between age and education in association with psychological well-being components (p> 0.05).

Conclusion: Psychological well-being of heart patients of Hamedan is relatively average or low. We can say that psychological well-being of these patients, in comparison with healthy people, is remarkably low. Psychological well-being of men and women patients was different, but considering age and education there was no difference in psychological well-being of heart patients. Thus, we cannot predict psychological well-being based on the basis of age and education.
