ABSTRACT

Mental Health is considered to be an important factor influencing individual’s behaviour, activities, happiness and performance. According to Laddell, “Mental Health is the ability to make adequate adjustments to the environment”. Bhatia (1982) considers it as the ability to balance feelings, desires, ambitions and ideals in one’s daily living. The factor which can contribute to Mental Health is the Quality of work life which is defined as set of favourable conditions and environments of a workplace that supports and promotes employee satisfaction by providing them with rewards, job security and growth opportunities. Therefore, a teacher’s mental health is considered to be an important aspect for an effective schooling system in India and hence, the present study aims to study how quality of work life relates to mental health and its impact on the teachers working in Corporate Schools. The sample for the study consists of 80 teachers who are currently working in different corporate schools. The tools used for this study are Mental Health Inventory (MHI) developed by Dr Jagdish and Dr. AK Srivastava and Quality of Work Life Scale by Dr. Santosh Dhar, Dr. Upinder Dhar and Dr. Rishu Roy.
