To study the level of mental health among mental health professionals working in psychiatric centers, we selected a sample composed of 120 professionals including nurses (NURs), psychologists (PSYs), social workers (SWs) and occupational therapists (OTs) and were tested by GHQ-28. Results showed that 34/9% of the sample, got a higher sèore than Iranian population cut of point, for GHQ-28. Rate of mental health problems prevalence in professionals was: 25/7% for PSYs , 35/5% for NURs, 16/7% for OTs and 66/5% for SWs. According to final findings, the highest rate of mental health problems prevalence for SWs, while they had the lowest mean of employment duration (0/9year for SWs, 2/4years for PSYs, 2/3 years for NURs, 2/1 years for OTs) led us to this hypothesis that if there is a correlation between mean of employment duration and getting mental problems in mental health professionals. Results also showed that there was no significant correlation between those two variables (r-0/02 and P < 0/80). But the above lower rate of mental problems for SWs, could be attributed to other causes.
