Background and Objectives: Mental health plays an important role in ensuring the dynamism and efficiency of each community. Medical Students, while having problems like other students, have their own special problems including mental and emotional stresses in the hospital environment and dealing with problems of patients. For this reason, it seems that they are more at risk of losing mental health than other students. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the mental health status of medical students of Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences in 2016.
Material and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 200 medical students of Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences were randomly selected and the necessary data was collected by completing the SCL90 questionnaire and then analyzed by independent t-test and one-way analysis of varience.
Results: In this study, the mean age of students was 22.9 ± 1.7 years. Of the samples, 102 (51%) were male and 97 (48.5%) were female. Also, among the subjects, 165 (82.9%) were single and 34 (17.1%) were married. The average total score of mental health was 79.97±56.34. Also, variables such as age, sex, and marital status had no significant effect on the students’ mental health score (p>0.05). But, the mean of total mental Health score in students with financial problems or chang in sleep habits was significantly higher than those who did not have these items. (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Considering the the results, although the majority of students have no mental disorders, many stressors threaten their mental health. Accordingly, provision of counseling and changing conditions governing educational environments may play an important role in improving the mental health of medical students.
