ZAMORANO, Alba; MUNOZ, Manuel; AUSIN, Berta  e  PEREZ, Eloísa. Relationship between mental health and level of functioning in people over 65 years in Madrid Region. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.2, pp.63-71. ISSN 2174-0550.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/clysa2019a8.

The objective of this study is to analyze the relationship between the level of functioning (LoF) and a number of variables: sociodemographic variables, physical and mental health of people over 65 years. The sample (N = 555) was a random sample from Madrid Region. Mental disorders were evaluated with the CIDI65+ and LoF with the WHODAS II and the HoNOS65+. Analysis of means, ANOVAs, Bonferroni adjustment, and a multiple linear regression analysis were performed. Women have a lower LoF than men and LoF decreases with age. Physical and mental disorders have a similar impact on LoF. The variables that have a greater impact on LoF are the number of psychological symptoms, the presence of any mental disorder, a worse financial situation, being older, and giving little importance to religious beliefs.
