About this course

This course will provide theoretical concepts, empirical research results and applied knowledge about the role of workplaces for workers’ mental health and mental well-being. We will discuss how conditions at the workplace, alone and in interaction with factors outside work, may impact, both positively and negatively, workers’ mental health and mental well-being. We will also discuss what workplaces can do to protect and improve workers’ mental health and mental well-being and how workplaces can address the needs of workers with reduced mental well-being and with prevalent mental disorders.

Subject background

Workplace mental health is one of the hot topics in work environment research, as illustrated, among other things, by the recent World Health Organization Guidelines on Mental Health at Work (September 2022; the World Health Organization and International Labour Organization Policy Brief on Mental Health at Work (September 2022); and the US Surgeon General’s Framework for Workplace Mental Health and Well-Being (October 2022).

There is an intense debate in research about the contribution of working conditions to workers’ mental health and mental well-being, including a discussion about interaction between work factors and factors outside work. We will present these topics in-depth at the course. There are also several ongoing European intervention studies on workplace mental health and we will present and discuss the latest results from these studies.

Our research group at NFA has extensive experience in workplace mental health research, in particular with regard to studying the role of working conditions in the development and course of common mental disorders. Recently, we also became a part of two large-scale ongoing Horizon Europe financed intervention study projects that aim to protect and improve workers’ mental health and well-being.
