Resumo

A religiosidade/espiritualidade (R/E) é um tema de grande interesse na atualidade, principalmente no que concerne à sua relação com a saúde mental. De fato, o efeito benéfico dessa associação tem sido descrito com níveis de bem-estar maiores, redução do uso de drogas, menores taxas de depressão e ansiedade, além de se apresentar como um fator protetor ao comportamento suicida (CS). Contudo, os mecanismos que possam explicar esses resultados ainda não foram adequadamente esclarecidos. Da mesma forma, existem muitas dificuldades em transpor esse conhecimento para a prática clínica, sendo este um dos maiores desafios deste campo de pesquisa. Assim, diante da relevância deste tópico, este artigo objetiva fazer uma atualização sobre as conexões entre R/E e CS, visando discutir não só os aspectos positivos, mas também os possíveis elementos negativos envolvidos nessa relação. Para tal, foi realizada uma revisão da literatura com ênfase em artigos publicados nas últimas duas décadas.
