According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), good mental health is a state of wellbeing where an individual realises their own potential, manages everyday stresses, works productively and contributes to their community.
General factors that can influence mental health include stress or social factors. Work-related issues that can affect mental health include:
- Working hours
- Working alone
- Alcohol and other drugs
