Abstract: This paper analyses psychological adjustment and checks a suggested theoretical model that relates the presence of psychopathological symptoms to a worse health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adult adoptees. The sample consisted of 177 young adopted adults (mean age 27.67). Measures of psychopathological symptoms (SCL-90), quality of life (SF 12), self-esteem (RSES), and resilience (BRS) were taken. The multiple mediation model shows that, in addition to the direct association between psychopathological symptomatology and a poorer HRQOL, resilience, and self-esteem have a buffering effect on this relationship. As a conclusion, empirical evidence of the impact of mental health difficulties on the HRQOL of adopted people is shown. The presence of positive psychological resources, such as resilience and self esteem, causes psychopathological dimensions, such as anxiety, depression, phobias, or psychoticism to decrease. This paper supports the inclusion of resilience-building programs as a health promotion strategy, especially in the case of psychopathology, and among post-adoption services.

Participaron 177 adultos jóvenes adoptados (media 27.67 años). Se tomaron medidas de síntomas psicopatológicos (SCL-90), calidad de vida (SF-12), autoestima (RSES) y resiliencia (BRS). El modelo de mediación múltiple resultante indica que además de la relación directa entre psicopatología y CVRS, la resiliencia y la autoestima tienen un efecto amortiguador en esta relación. Como conclusiones, se evidencia el impacto de las dificultades en salud mental en la CVRS de personas adoptadas. La presencia de recursos psicológicos positivos, como resiliencia y autoestima, hace que dimensiones psicopatológicas como ansiedad, depresión, fobias o psicoticismo pierdan valor. Se sugiere incluir programas que potencien la resiliencia como estrategia para mejorar la salud y en los servicios de postadopción.
