Introduction: The quality of life in families with disabled children is usually lower than normal. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of group therapy on improving mental health, happiness and improving the quality of life of parents with disabled children.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population of this study was all parents with disabled children in Yasuj city in 2015 and the sample of this study was selected by simple random sampling. Thirty people were selected in each group of 15 patients. The experimental group participated in 10 courses of 90 min. Before and after treatment, both groups responded to the Oxford Happiness Scale questionnaire and a short form of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire. Data were analyzed using covariance
Results: The results of covariance analysis showed that factual education therapy had a significant effect on improving mental health and happiness and improving the quality of life of parents with disabled children (P≤0.05). Also, the results of the sub-assumptions of the research showed that there is a significant difference between the results of single-variable covariance analysis for all components of happiness and quality of life between the two groups (P <0.001).  
Conclusions: It can be concluded that the reality of therapy has had an increasing effect on the quality of life and the happiness of parents. The results of this study can be helpful for family therapists, family clinical psychologists, welfare organizations, and the Association for the Protection of Disabled People.
