Muaadh Abdulghani Alsamawi, Saddam Ahmed Al-Ahdal.

Abstract
Depression is a common, high-staff psychiatric condition in a psychiatric hospital. This study assessed the prevalence of depression in nurses with more than one year's working experience in Khartoum State-Sudan Public Mental Health Hospital and looked at their relations with the participants' socio-demographic features. The study used a descriptive cross-sectional research design. It was performed between August and December 2017 in two governmental psychiatric hospitals in Khartoum state. Complete scope samples of 39 nurses were picked. Details of demographics and depression were gathered by questionnaire; the rate of depression was measured by medical measurement of depression (HADS-D) and anxiety. The data analysis was performed with the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, version 25). The statistical importance of P < 0.05 was taken into consideration. The average incidence of depression was observed in 21 nurses (54%). The study showed a statistically crucial positive correlation between depression and years of experience, 40-hour weekly work, and psychiatric work. Finally, among study subjects, the prevalence of depression is substantial. Therefore, more considerable attention should be paid to this problem in mental health hospitals. Further research is required to broaden awareness on this issue and will help approaches to ensure that the physical and psychological wellbeing concerns of psychiatric patients are met.

Key words: Depression, Nurses, Public Mental Health, Hospitals.
