ABSTRACT

The Purpose of the present investigation is to find out the mental health of doctors and advocates. The study was conducted on a sample of 300 professionals (150 Doctors and 150 Advocates) drawn from Meerut District. Mental health was measured by Mithila Mental Health status Inventory (M.M.H.S.I.) developed by Kumar and Thakur (1986). The results were analysed with the help of ANOVA and t test, ANOVA revealed that profession and occupation of spouse cumulatively influences the mental health of professionals. It was found that doctors have better mental health as compared to advocates. In the same way doctors and advocates who have working spouse have better mental health as compared to those whose spouse are not working. Thus the findings have applied application for doctors and advocates.
