People with schizophrenia experience limited social interaction because of affective, cognitive, and psychomotor alterations. The problem
of interaction requires intervention to increase their social interaction. There is a need for a system that can monitor the development of
the interactive social abilities of people with schizophrenia. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of mindfulness therapy
on the social interaction of people with schizophrenia using a mobile application (SI-DESIS). Fifty-two people with schizophrenia who
met the criteria were divided into an intervention group and a control group. The mindfulness therapy was carried out in six sessions for
three weeks. Data were collected using pre-test and post-test scores with the Social Interaction Questionnaire and Behavior Observation
Sheet. The results showed an increase in the level of social interaction for participants who were given the intervention (U = 12,000,
p < 0.05). The rise of social interaction emphasized the stages of mindfulness therapy: the comfort stage and the independently healthy
target stage. Mindfulness-based mobile applications are useful to enhance the social interactions of people with schizophrenia.
