FRANZIM NETO, Luciano; SILVEIRA, Bettieli  and  CRUZ, Roberto. Functional assessment of workers with mental disorders: a systematic review. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp.529-540. ISSN 1645-0086.

The development of functionality and the emergence of mental disorders (MD) is a process where biopsychosocial factors, separately or together, aggravate and perpetuate the individual's disability. The evaluation of the functionality related to life and work are objects of growing scientific interest in several areas of knowledge and professional practices. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on the scope of its definitions, especially in function of the degree of complexity of the personal and environmental variables involved. The present study had as objective to make a systematic review in the literature that had as purpose to evaluate the functionality in professionals with MD. According to the methodological procedures of PRISMA, a bibliographic survey was carried out between 2008 and January 2019. For this purpose, the following databases were consulted: Scopus, Science Direct, PubMed e BVS PSI. There was a lack of research on the subject, since only five articles were found with this theme. The focus of the research was, in general, on the research that the impact of one or more MD affects the functionality in the worker, besides evidencing the associations between the constructs. This scientific gap indicates a niche of research lacking exploration, thus finding that the evaluation of the functionality in professionals with MD were not properly explored. The characterization of the knowledge used in this study indicate, above all, ways for structuring methodologies and instruments capable of responding to social and scientific needs related to the subject.
