Abstract:  
ABSTRACT Background and Aim: Prisoners’ mental health and provision of psychological services have drawn the attention of many experts in this field. Many studies have shown that the prevalence of mental disorders and low levels of resilience which is a factor for the development of mental disorders among the prisoners is higher than that of the general population. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of mental disorders and its relationship with resilience in male prisoners. Materials and Methods: The population target in this cross-sectional study was all the male prisoners of Adel Abad Prison in Shiraz. 140 subjects were entered into this study via convenient sampling method. Resilience Scale for Adults and Symptom Check List were used for data collection. Data were analyzed by means of Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression analysis. Results: The results of this study indicated that symptoms of mental disorders were present in a high percentage of the prisoners. Moreover 97.1 % of the prisoners showed low levels of resilience. Furthermore, linear regression analysis revealed that, except for phobia and paranoia, resilience was a significant negative predictor of SCL90 total score and its subscales. Conclusion: Mental disorders and low levels of resilience were prevalent among prisoners. The results of this study emphasize the necessity of providing psychosocial services for prisoners. Also resilience as an influencing factor in the development of mental disorders deserves attention. Keywords: Resilience, Mental disorders, Prisoners Received: Dec 31, 2011 Accepted: May 3, 2012
