Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To track the presence of minor mental disorders and levels of resilience in nursing professionals who work in emergency services and inpatient units, as well as to verify possible associations between these variables and sociodemographic and professional characteristics.

METHODS: Descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional study consisted of 203 nursing professionals (nurses, nursing technicians, and nursing assistants), from the country side of São Paulo State. Data collection was performed using a sociodemographic and professional characterization instrument and the Brazilian version of the Self-Report Questionnaire (SRQ-20) and the resilience scale.

RESULTS: The overall prevalence of minor mental disorders among the participants was 31%, being lower among older professionals and men. The resilience of the professionals was high, with mean values ​​of 136.4 (±20.1) points. Older professionals and those who worked in emergency units had higher resilience scores. Lower resilience scores are associated with a greater possibility of minor mental disorders in this study.

CONCLUSION: Resilience can be considered a protective factor against minor mental disorders in nursing professionals. Effective strategies must be taken into account to change this scenario of illness of a significant part of the nursing team.
