The aim of this study was to explore the levels of burnout and associations with anxiety and depressive symptoms among Greek-Cypriot psychiatric–mental health nurses (PMHNs). A descriptive correlational design with cross-sectional comparisons was applied. A sample of 226 PMHNs was used. Participants reported low levels of burnout. However, 10% of them manifested clinically significant anxiety and depressive symptoms. Emotional exhaustion and depersonalization were associated with depressive (r = 0.562, p b 0.0001, and r = 0.616, p b 0.0001, respectively) and anxiety (r = 0.394, p b 0.0001, and r = 0.448, p b 0.0001, respectively) symptoms. Further research investigating the biological aetiopathology of these psychological alterations is warranted.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/4075||ISSN:||0883-9417||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.apnu.2013.08.004||Rights:||© Elsevier Inc.||Type:||Article|
