Abstract: Objective Thisstudyaimstoanalyzementalhealth,nutritional status, and physical activity in psychiatry residents. Methods Sixty-tworesidents wereinvited and59participated (95.2 % response). Depressive, anxious, and social phobic symptoms; alcohol use; and nicotine dependence were measured. Body mass index and lifestyle were also evaluated. Results Almost half of psychiatry residents were overweight or obese, and 61 % reported a sedentary lifestyle. Furthermore, 33.9 % of residents had high scores for anxiety; 30.5%forsocialphobia;and19%fordepression.Inaddition, 81.4 % reported alcohol use, and 22 % had harmful alcohol use.Highscoresfor anxiety wereassociatedwithlower attentionandworserelationshipwithpreceptors,andhighscoresof depressivesymptomswererelatedtoaworserelationshipwith patients and preceptors. Anxiety was associated with depressive symptoms (p<0.001) and social phobia (p=0.006). Conclusion The findings of this study highlight high rates of overweight/obesity, physical inactivity, and depressive and anxiety symptoms in psychiatric residents. students often delay search for professional help, and selfdiagnosis and self-treatment are common practices [2]. Rates of stress, depression, and suicide in physicians and medical students are high [3], and studies show that medical students havehigherratesofoverweight,obesity,andphysicalinactivity when compared to students in other fields [4]. Medical residents combine a double load of stress. They are at the same time physicians and students. Although still in training, they assume great responsibilities [5]. Few studies focus on residents’ health. Therefore, this study aims to analyze psychiatric symptoms,nutritionalstatus,and physical activityin psychiatry residents.
