Abstract: There is a high prevalence and incidence of mental disorders. Physical exercise is an important intervention for patients with mental disorders. Since people suffering from some mental disorder tend not to practice physical exercise due to a variety of reasons, such as lack of will, discouragement, fatigue, among others, health professionals working in this area are directly responsible for the promotion of a more active lifestyle, recommending or prescribing exercise for this audience. However, some barriers such as lack of specific knowledge about physical activity as well as lack of understanding of the importance of intervention for the promotion of physical health affect how much exercise is recommended and prescribed. In order to carry out this work, it was necessary to transculturally translate and adapt the "The Exercise in Mental Illness Questionnaire (EMIQ)" because there was nothing in Portuguese that could be used to achieve the study objectivesThe objectives of the present study were 1) to transculturally translate and adapt the instrument The Exercise in Mental Illness Questionnaire (EMIQ) for the Portuguese language; 2) understand the knowledge of mental health professionals about the prescription and recommendation of physical activity for people with mental disorders through the application of the questionnaire. 74 mental health professionals participated in the study (68.5% women, mean age = 37.03 years; all worked in the CAPS of the city of Porto Alegre and Canoas, in Rio Grande do Sul / BR. The most frequent barriers were "prescription of physical exercise for people with mental disorders is best performed by a physical exercise practitioner or physical therapist (26%)," there is much stigma associated with having mental disorders (12.3%). We find through the comparative sum of barriers and frequency of prescription that those who "never" prescribe have more barriers than those that prescribe "always" (64,31[9,32] and 52,37[9,27], p = 0.005). Those professionals who do the minimum of recommended physical exercise prescribe more AF for their patients (P = 0.040). The data demonstrate that professionals see barriers to prescribe physical exercise for patients with mental disorders and, therefore, it is necessary to stimulate, train and modify the structures of undergraduate courses for better performance in this area. Promoting the practice of physical activity among professionals can reduce existing barriers to the recommendation and prescription of physical activity for people with mental disorders.
