During the COVID-19 pandemic, there were numerous studies conducted around the world on stress, depression, and anxiety in medical personnel. However, the research on pharmaceutical staff, who are also a significant contributing force in prevention at the hospital, is still limited. The study was carried out by a cross-sectional descriptive method. A total of 125 pharmacy staff working at the medical facilities were directly interviewed. The χ2 test was used to test the relationship between factors with α = 0.05, and the odds ratio (OR) with a 95% confidence interval was calculated. The obtained results showed that the percentages of stress, anxiety, and depression among pharmacy staff were 67.2%, 12.0%, and 10.4%, accordingly. Situational stress, anxiety, and depression correlated to education levels, monthly income, and weekly working time. This research emphasized the importance of mental health care for health workers. It promoted the state management agency to organize training courses and share soft skills with pharmaceutical staff to overcome difficulties and bad psychology while on duty at the department.
