Abstract

Mental health has been one of the most directly affected during the pandemic; this should be evaluated in workforce populations. To determine the socio-labor factors associated with mental illness in the past 6 months in Honduran workers. Analytical, multi-center, cross-sectional study. Through surveys in health establishments, we inquired about the suffering of a mental illness in the last six months; this was cross-checked against labor and other socio-educational variables. Of the 8842 people evaluated, 97.8% had no mental illness, 1.9% had one, 0.3% had two and 0.01% (1) had three simultaneously. The most diagnosed mental illness was depression (97 diagnosed cases). A lower frequency in the last 6 months was found among men (p=0.002), among those with a permanent type of contract (p=0.033) or with a temporary contract (p=0.003), on the contrary, those who had three or more COVID-19 infections (p=0.030), adjusted for three variables. Depression and anxiety were the most diagnosed pathologies. According to the suffering of any pathology, there was an association according to sex, type of work contract, and number of times the disease was suffered.
