ARINO, Daniela Ornellas  and  BARDAGI, Marúcia Patta. Relations Between Academic Factors and Mental Health of University Students. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.3, pp. 44-52. ISSN 1982-1247.

The literature reports that undergraduates are vulnerable to the development of mental disorders. This study aimed to analyze the relations between Anxiety, Depression and Stress with the Quality of Academic Experience and Self-efficacy. Data collection was performed through a digital protocol, made available and disseminated through electronic resources. A total of 640 Brazilian undergraduates participated in the study. The results demonstrate a statistically significant negative correlation between Anxiety, Stress and Depression and Academic Experiences, as well as Self-efficacy. Given the relationship between illness and academic and career factors, it is necessary to establish instruments for the early detection of Mental Disorder symptoms in this population, as well as actions that favor more positive academic experiences.

Keywords : Mental Health; Undergraduates; Self efficacy; Academic Experience.
