SCHUNKE, Lídia Käfer  e  GIONGO, Carmem Regina. Political crossing: organizational culture and moral suffering in public service. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.3, pp. 449-456. ISSN 1984-6657.

Professional activity and work organization have a fundamental place in the relationship between the mental health and illness processes. This research aims to understand the relationship between management practices in public institutions and the mental health of municipal public servants in the region of Vale do Sinos, Rio Grande do Sul, through an exploratory-descriptive design, following a qualitative methodology. Six municipal public servants participated in the research. A questionnaire and a semi-structured interview were used. The material collected was submitted to content analysis, resulting in two categories: Management practices, culture, and work; effects of management practices and culture on worker health. The existence of an organizational culture based on political and clientelist values was verified, where the public machine is used as a means for maintaining political power. This scenario leads to lack of recognition, moral suffering, and subjective disinvestment, promoting a scenario of risk to workers' mental health.

Palavras-chave : mental health; public service; moral suffering.
