Mental health in the workplace can cover a range of issues that affect employees’ state of mind. These conditions range from mild depression and stress to severe anxiety that may result in burnout and even nervous breakdowns. Substance abuse may also perpetuate mental health issues.
Better Work Jordan’s mental health project has produced the second version of the “Mental Health in the Workplace” policy in collaboration with national stakeholders. The policy will support and guide the factories in the garment sector to enhance the workers’ mental health in the garment sector.
The policy is available in Arabic here.
