Abstract

 Background and purpose: The most common weakness caused by a neurological disease is MS, in which the Milin membrane is decimalized, which brings a reduction in the neural message transfer. The neural message transfer stops, which causes an increased lack of sensitivity (non-stimulus) physical disorders and central neural system involvement. This also causes various physical, psychological, relationship disorders, in addition to negative social and family behaviors for those who are needy. Due to the lack of research in the Mazandaran Province regarding psychological health of MS PATIENTS, there exist discrepancies resulting from research on the given subject around the world. This study, aims at determining the psychological health of the MS PATIENTS and its relationship to the field variables in the Mazandran Province.Materials and methods: The present study is of descriptive type and samples were MS PATIENTS who were members of the MS association from Mazandran Province. The sample consisted of 134 MS PATIENTS, who were under our study and had documented cases of MS, and were chosen among 700 MS PATIENTS randomly. The data gathering tool was a questionnaire, which consisted of field information and a standard questionnaire of GHQ, with 28 questions which were completed by PATIENTS.Results: The research showed that 17/9% had severe physical problems, 38/8% had severe social problems, 11/2% had high depression, and 14/9% with high anxiety. Based on the results of this study, statistical test showed a significant relationship between psychological health and educational levels (f=6/63, and critical f=2/68). However, the analysis of variance showed no relationship between MS and income levels. It should be noted, that our research findings showed a significant relationship (based on the independent t statistical test), between psychological health in 4 aspects with MS (t=5/06, p=0/05, df=132 and critical t=1/96).Conclusion: Regarding disorders in MS patient’s psychological, physical, social, anxiety and depression in some PATIENTS, it is suggested that we utilize counseling and psychologically stimulating programs in working with these PATIENTS.
