The resulting regression equation is Y = 5.627 + 0.733X1 + 1.739X2-0.021X3. Therefore, it can be concluded that social capital is a predictor that influences community coping strategies. It is therefore recommended that the community could strengthen their social capital to help the recovery of patients with schizophrenia.
