Abstract

The family is considered as one of the most important institutions that affect people's physical and mental health and is able to provide people with physical, emotional and social balance. Family is the most important institution of society; and many social science researches are based on this institution. This is the first study to investigate the relationship between family mental functioning and the level of education. This is a descriptive-analytical, epidemiological study conducted on 232 employees of three hospitals. The sampling was done randomly. In this study, first, the subjects were asked to complete a demographic questionnaire, and then the McMaster questionnaire was used to assess family functioning. The family functioning score was higher in samples having MSc and PhD (12.194) than other levels of education (p-value= 0.0001), in addition, family functioning score in samples whose head of household had PhD (79.195), was higher than the other samples (p-value= 0.0001). In this study, an increase in family level of education led to an increase in family mental functioning as well, that is likely because people who have a higher level of education use better problem-solving techniques, higher communication skills, and verbal level and employ it in the challenges of life, and maybe people with fewer psychological problems had the ability to achieve a higher level of education.
