Étude exploratoire chez les étudiants en première année à l’École de Santé des Armées : impact d’un fonctionnement en pleine conscience sur le stress et la santé

Abstract : Introduction: during the first year of medical school, students are especially exposed and vulnerable to stress, which creates psychological and somatic pathologies. Mindfulness is the awareness without judgment of one’s emotions, affects and feelings in the present moment. Mindfulness is associated with better stress management and health. Our work aims to assess mindfulness the impact of mindfulness on students’ stress and health. Methods: we conducted our study with 148 first year medical military students at Ecole de Santé des Armées (ESA). We collected scores for mindfulness, perceived stress, depression and well-being using self-report scales completed in September 2016 and May 2017. Results: students with a low mindfulness score (non-mindful) were found to have greater perception of their stress along with lower well-being and depression scores than mindful students. Mindfulness score changed during the year for some students. Those who remained or had become mindful ended up being mentally healthy at the end of the school year. Conversely, those who remained non-mindful or who decreased their mindfulness were less mentally healthy by year end. Conclusion: mindfulness can be considered as a healthy behavior for first year ESA students because it decreases perception of stress and symptoms of depression, while increasing well-being.
