Santé mentale chez les professionnels de la santé mentale : une nouvelle préoccupation en santé publique

Abstract : In recent years, statistics have shown a lack of human resources and an increase in psychiatric consultations in hospitals. The one in the city of Culiacán is a flagran illustration of this. Various reports also indicate the complex social conditions anddifficulties of working in hospitals. Many writings have exhibited that the co-presence of these factors causes suffering among mental health professionals. This research focuses from a medical-anthropology perspective, to comprehend how these professionals either be able or take charge patients and treat them when they themselves are susceptible to have the same type of suffering. Moreover, it addresses the issue of “mental health” among mental health professionals from the emergence of suffering and disorders that are found in them. This work assesses, through an ethnographic field, the working conditions and the mental health status of the mental health professionals at the Sinaloa Psychiatric Hospital. Suffering and disorders at work are becoming as a form of normality today. The problem of “mental health” among mental health professionals can thus interpret as a way of expression, a language whereby social relations or experiences in ahospital expressed. The main objective of this thesis is to identify how these mental health professionals are subject to complex structural and social conditions and to analyze the factors contributing to the emergence of mental suffering and mental disorders among mental health professionals in their therapeutic practices.
