The data was collected by mental health questionnaire (G.H.Q-28) and Burnout (Maslach) questionnaires, and analyzed by kruskal Wallis, Mann-Whitney and Spearman correlation.

Results: Significant relationship between mental health and burnout (P=0.0001, r=-0.844) showed that mental health enhancement  reduced the level of  burn out. The mean mental health (19.28± 10.77)  was excellent . Two domains of “somatization" and "depression and suicidal tendencies" were better than "social dysfunction" and "anxiety and sleep disorders".
