SILVA, Andrécia Cósmem da et al. Prevalence and factors associated with common mental disorder in rural settlers. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2019, vol.15, n.1, pp. 23-31. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to estimate prevalence and factors associated with common mental disorder in rural settlement dwellers. METHODS: a cross-sectional study was carried out in 162 settlement residents located in the Center-West region of Brazil. A semi-structured questionnaire was used, the probability of common mental disorder obtained through the Self-Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ-20) and family functionality was assessed by the Family APGAR instrument. The data were analyzed in the STATA program. RESULTS: the prevalence of probability of common mental disorder was estimated with a 95% confidence interval. Poisson regression analysis with robust variance was used to evaluate the association between common mental disorder and potential predictors. The prevalence of the possibility of mental disorder was 24.1%. The variables "female sex", "exposure to violence" and "use of hypnotics / sedatives" were associated. CONCLUSION: it was verified that such predictors should be considered in the health care of this population, regarding health prevention and promotion practices, in addition to reflecting the need for articulation of public policies that approximate the rural population and the health sector, regardless of territorial barriers.
