Objective: To reflect on the mental health of Nursing professionals in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. Method: This is a theoretical-reflective study based on the discursive formulation on the theme and supported by the national and international scientific literature and by the authors' critical analysis. Results: The analyzed studies, along with the care practice, showed that Nursing professionals are susceptible to the exacerbation of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, anguish, and stress in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, in view of their exhaustive work shifts, patients' deaths, risk of infecting themselves and their families, and social isolation. Final considerations: The mental health of Nursing professionals needs to be listed as one of the priorities for health managers, guaranteeing strategies and public policies that ensure sanity for those who are in the front line of the fight against the pandemic.
Objective: To analyze the experiences that generate pleasure and suffering in the work of nurses in an oncopediatric inpatient unit. Methods: Qualitative, exploratory, descriptive study. Data collection took place from March to May 2018, through interviews with eight nurses in an oncopediatric inpatient unit. Results: The verbalized experiences of pleasure were the work developed with children, participation in the treatment and cure of patients and the recognition of family members in relation to the work performed. The suffering experiences were palliative care and death of patients, performing invasive procedures and organizing work. Final considerations: It was possible to analyze the experiences of pleasure and suffering of nurses in an oncopediatric unit through the psychodynamics of work, allowing to reinvent prevention and intervention measures by managers in health/mental illness processes at work.

Conclusion: family members verbalized difficulties and suggestions to support reflection on the care offered to people with psychiatric symptoms hospitalized in clinical units, in order to improve work practices and qualify care.
Objective: to analyze the aspects that hinder blood donation and strategies to attract donors. Methods: qualitative study conducted with 12 donors. The data was collected through semi-structured interviews and analyzed using Content Analysis.

Objective: To reflect on the mental health of nursing professionals one year after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Method: Theoretical-reflective study based on evidence found in national and international scientific literature, on the discursive elaboration on the theme and including the authors' perception and critical analysis. Results: After one year facing the pandemic, nursing professionals experienced a worsening of their mental health, given the persistence and also the deterioration of the health system scenario, high risk of contamination and repercussions of the disease in professional and personal lives. Final considerations: Managers of health institutions are supposed to be sensitive to and understand the psychological distress faced, or to be faced, by nursing workers, by providing spaces for dialogue aimed to improve and maintain the mental health of these workers.
Objetivo: Analisar os desafios e sugestões no cuidado ao paciente clínico com sintomas psiquiátricos na percepção dos enfermeiros em unidades de internação clínica de um hospital geral. Método: Estudo qualitativo, do tipo exploratório-descritivo. A coleta dos dados ocorreu nos meses de agosto a setembro de 2019, por meio de entrevista semiestruturada com 13 enfermeiros. Resultados: Os entrevistados apontaram como desafios para a execução do cuidado: o despreparo do atendimento em decorrência da baixa carga horária dos cursos de graduação e a dificuldade de acesso à consultoria psiquiátrica. Em relação às sugestões, os enfermeiros entendem a necessidade de qualificar o cuidado através de capacitações, conhecimento da unidade de internação psiquiátrica do hospital e melhor dimensionamento de pessoal. Considerações finais: É imprescindível que sejam suscitadas reflexões a respeito da assistência a essas pessoas em outras áreas, contribuindo para a inclusão da subjetividade no cuidado integral no campo da saúde mental.
