ABREU, Mariana Marinho de  e  MACEDO, João Paulo. Mental health in Psychology students of a public institution: prevalence of disorders and associated factors. Rev. SBPH [online]. 2021, vol.24, n.1, pp. 91-103. ISSN 1516-0858.

Entry into Higher Education Systems is characterized as an important stage, so it has been the object of many studies regarding the repercussion in the lives of students. The study aimed to investigate the prevalence of Common Mental Disorders (CMD) and associated factors in psychology students of a federal higher education institution. It is a cross-sectional, descriptive-exploratory study. There were 261 students from all periods of the course. The data were collected based on the socio-academic questionnaire and the Self-Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ-20) was used for TMC tracking. Based on descriptive statistics, based on the chi-square test, the analysis indicated a high prevalence of CMT in this population (60.2%), with emphasis on the following associated factors: gender, cost of living, adaptation to the new city of housing, academic performance, satisfaction with the choice of course, not participating in sports and recreational activities, among others. The study is an important resource to foster institutional actions and policies of prevention in the field of mental health, on the part of student assistance, as well as psychological support services to these students.
