LOPES, Fernanda Machado et al. Common mental disorders in university students: a systematic literature review. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2022, vol.16, n.1, pp.1-23. ISSN 1982-1247.

Common Mental Disorders (CMD) are characterized by symptoms that cause suffering. This systematic review aimed to describe and analyze articles on the prevalence of CMD among Brazilian university students. The search was carried out on the Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde Portal using the keywords "Academic" OR "University Students" AND "Common Mental Disorders". Among the 229 eligible articles, 18 were included. The prevalence of CMD detected ranged from 19% to 55.3%, and in 11 studies it was greater than 40%; higher than when compared to international studies with university students, nationals with general population and other samples. Mental health care interventions are suggested for this public.

Keywords : College students; Common Mental Disorders; Prevalence; Systematic review.
