ALVES, Julia Secatti; GAMEIRO, Ana Cristina Polycarpo  e  BIAZI, Paula Hisa Goto. Stress, depression and anxiety in mothers of autism: National review. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2022, vol.39, n.120, pp.412-424. ISSN 0103-8486.

The proposal of this study it was to identify, in the Brazilian literature, the presence and intensity of stress, depression and anxiety in mothers of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is about a research of systematic review, developed on productions published in the bibliographic databases BVS (Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde), Portal de Periódicos CAPES and Pepsic (Periódicos Eletrônicos em Psicologia), without time restriction. The search procedure resulted in nine articles for the final analysis database. The results demonstrate that mothers are significantly affected by stress, with the presence of the construct in most of the target audience, with a total predominance of psychological symptoms and the prevalence of alarming phases of stress. In relation to depression and anxiety, the studies demonstrated divergences regarding the results. Considering the numerous aspects that influence the development of certain constructs, as well as the results of research, although the presence of depression and anxiety, in addition to high levels of stress, have been found in national research, it is not possible to say that the disorder be the main cause. The present research also made it possible to demonstrate the scarcity of Brazilian studies of a certain nature. Thus, it highlighted the need for national investigations dedicated to this public, in order to reliably support interventions aimed at promoting mental health and better quality of life.
