Introduction: - World Health Organization estimated that up to one half of all people affected by natural and man-made affections develop mental distress. In developing countries where morbidity and mortality due to malnutrition and infectious diseases are very common, mental disorders are not regarded as life threatening problems which seem too insignificant, unworthy and lacking public health attention. College students who are with different stresses have more severe mental health problems than ever before. Objectives: - To assess the prevalence of mental distress and associated factors among undergraduate medicine and health science students, at Aksum University, northwest Ethiopia Methods: - A cross-sectional study was conducted at Aksum University from April 30/2018 to June 29/2018, by using self-reporting questionnaire. Simple Random sampling was used to select a total of 554 students among a total student population of the University. Data was entered using Epi info version 7 and analyzed using SPSS 20. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regressions were done to identify associated factors. Variables with p-value <0.05 have been considered as statistically significant. Result: - A total of 528 students were participated yielding a response rate of 95.3 %. The overall prevalence rate of mental distress in the University was found to be 25.4%. Mental distress was found about three times higher among students who were using Substance (AOR=3.36 95%CI: (1.85, 6.10)) compared to students who were not using and medical students were two times higher among those who are second year when compared to those who are fifth year students (AOR= 2.09, 95%CI: (1.03, 4.23)). Conclusion: - In this study prevalence of mental distress was found to be high. Smoking cigarette and year of study were associated with mental distress. Therefore it is better if Aksum University establish a counseling mechanism to monitor student’s school performance within the campus and strengthen an action to protect students who are at risk of substance abuse.
